Goals, Gondolas & Garlic

Didn't take a gondola. And, didn't taste any garlic. Otherwise the day was great.  

Goals for the day? 

1. Get kayak for Endre.  

 To make a long story short, we ended up in a factory and bought a great kayak called Marlin. Now, Endre is ready to paddle

Goal 2: Get a ride to and from place of purchase.  

   Tito was our silent hero. He picked us up and 09:00 and drove us to a factory. There we chose a kayak, paid and drove back to Venice.

Goal 3:  Get back at 12:00 and get moving. We picked up our gear from the hotel and made our way to the storage place where the kayak was resting. Then we loaded the gear and set out. Hah. 17:00 hrs. Bit late.

Paddled out of Venice and said our silent goodbyes.  

 A man in black came out and sprinkled the kayak with some water.
