Beautiful Venice: My August Photo #20

I didn't get round to posting a photo yesterday, life got in the way and I had a much needed night out :) This is the photo I had planned to post, another Throwback Thursday photo, this time from beautiful Venice. I'm lucky to have visited three times and it never fails to amaze me. It's one of my favourite places in the world and anyone who has visited will know why. This was toddler's second holiday abroad and this photograph is taken from a boat on our way to the Lido, another island (with a beach) across the lagoon. I was looking through my holiday snaps and there are so many I took on that trip and so many I want to share! This one captures the movement that is typical on the main canal with ferries, gondolas and speed boats all whizzing by in different directions at different speeds, all trying to get to their desired destination with that stunning Venice backdrop in the distance. Toddler loved this little boat ride, regularly looking at the waves of water the boat left behind and making lots of friends. He was in his very cute smiley baby phase then so would smile at anyone that looked his way and got so much attention on this trip! Venice is such an amazing city, I would love to take toddler back when he's a little older.
I'm posting a photo a day throughout August. Have you got a photo you would like to share? Come and link up to #MyAugustPhoto linky

  1. Such a lovely photo.
    I hope you'll come link up at

  2. So much to see in Venice that we left the boat rid off:) Great pic and lovely memories!

  3. That looks choppy water!! I went to a ball on Lido and on the way home the boat crashed into the dock. It was funny (and scary)

  4. I am blind so cannot actually see the picture, but your writing about the boat trip to Lido across the lagoon is beautiful. I remember when I still had some vision as a child, I always loved looking at the big waves the ferry we took to one of the Dutch Wadden Islands when going on vacation made. #WeekendBlogHop

  5. This is such a cool photo! I love gondola boats, they are so pretty, and you immediately know it's Venice. I've never been, but one day maybe! Sabrina xx #weekendblogshare

  6. I never realised the lagoon or canals were so busy or wide.
    Gorgeous picture and memory.
    Some local Dragon boaters went to Venice recently.

  7. Yours is the third blog that I've come across in the last two days with photos from Venice! I think that is a sign that I need to start making plans to make a trip ;)

    Thank you for joining with us at Photo Friday again this week!

  8. Venice!!! So much envy!!! My boyfriend and I were talking about going there sometime in the future. Riding a gondola is on my to do list!!! Do you have a post(s) about any of the trips to Venice?

  9. What a gorgeous photo! I would love to go to Venice, definitely on my must-visit list. I love the sense of movement in this picture, fab x #whatsthestory
