Ce n'est pas courant de voir des bateaux sur le toit. Ceux-ci ont bien vécus.
Picturit: We had to look twice to see if it was indeed what we saw smile
Wow - I'd like to know the story behind this scene!!
Picturit: I think there is so little "landspace in Venice" they need the roofs too??
I wonder here also, Elizabeth.
OH, YES! I remember that! It was a "turn around and stare" moment, as I recall.
Picturit: Don't you love some of the thing we have to look twice at, Ginnie. Quite unexpected. I hope they don't wait for the sea level to rise that high...
That must have been quite a high tide, Astrid.
Picturit: I think so too, or they are waiting for one to get away in them...

This is a BRILLIANT idea Astrid, storing boats on your roof. I shall start doing just that thing at home myself
Picturit: I think you have space enough on you garage and you can just sail away into the valley..... grin... (if the sea level are rising too high)

Oh, this is another Venice than the touristic one - good to show it, too.
Picturit: We saw a lot of non-tourist-thingies, Philine. We love to roam around a city and discover the "unknown".
Have a great weekend.

That must have been a pretty bad storm Astrid.
Picturit: I think so too, Chad. Or they are waiting for the sea the rise again and use these boats to get away.
Zo....de restant boten op het dak dan hebben we er geen last meer van !!
En hoe langer je kijkt hoe meer je ziet!
Picturit: We zijn Venetië eens van de industriële kant gaan bekijken en hebben dingen gezien die je niet verwacht in Venetië, maar het is net als in elke andere stad, er is altijd een gedeelte met "afbraak".
I suppose that's one place to keep boats smile
Picturit: They really thought about this place... and not easy to steal wink
All the comments have been made grin
Picturit: I know the dilemma, the later in the afternoon the less things you can say about a picture what hasn't already been said grin..... I have the same....HA HA HA.
That must have been quite a storm!
Picturit: Indeed, Tom. Or they wait for a storm and get away with those boats.
Strange place to leave your boat...
Picturit: We thought so too, however you never know when you need them again, Larry.
Nice shot. Those boats sure are high and dry.
Picturit: Thank you, Michael. we had to look twice to really se what we saw. One thing is sure, they won't be stolen easily.

Best place to store boats - on the roof. With the next tsunami they can just float away in one of the boats.
Picturit: I think you got the clue here, Louis, thank you.
the traffic in Venice is terrible Astrid... good find....petersmile
Picturit: HA HA HA..... I know they just don't the rules of who has the right to go first... smile
It looks like a tornado has gone by
This is kind of crazy to see for us on the sea.
Picturit: Don't you just love this, the things we saw in Venice were just amazing. Like you we like to look "behind the scenes".
