To Venice

Left London on another cool rainy day, what a surprise. Departed 11:30 am and arrived at Venice 2:10 pm. After getting baggage onto a vaparetto (water taxi) for a 30 minute ride to Venice.
Arrived at the hotel, unpacked a little and out the door for a quick stroll before dark. I got my bearings as to where my hotel, The Boscola,located on the island. It’s in the northern area of the island called Cannaregio. Far enough away from the crowed St. Marks & Rialto Bridge area yet, close enough to walk. 
Nice dinner at and outdoor restaurant with vino. Once it got dark a very nice walk in the shopping area of Cannaregio along the Grand Canal.
Early nite in bed for a full day tomorrow.
