Thousands of Islands

The Bumboat headed east into Lake Ontario to cruise the Thousand Islands.  Our three week cruise included passages through the Welland Canal, Erie Canal, and exploration of  thousands of islands.  Check out the voyage on Instagram at bumboatcaptain  The captain will be experimenting with future voyages on the Instagram format..... let's see how that works out....

Averidichi Venice

Our Air France flight to Paris left Venice on time
I had a good view of Venice, the Alps and Paris from the port side.

Disneyworld of Europe

We romped around Venice with surprisingly large crowds.  Way too too many tourist shops and too too much shopping.  I was here 30 years  ago and it hasn't changed.  No need to return....

Yachting to Venice

On our way to Venice via water taxi.

Ron is Fished Out

Dinner at Batelina outside Pula was completely seafood.  This restaurant was a favorite of Chef Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" television show.  Ron, who said he never saw so much unknown food on one plate, did not consider it one of his favorites.

Vesna's Birthplace

A VERY small town, Sutivanic, was where Vesna was born and grew up.  We stopped to pick up some rare cheese from one of her thousands of cousins.  Of couse, she knew everyone in town.  White house on left is where Vesna's mom was born.  Vesna was born in house down the hill.

Laben on the Hill

A few kilometres from Rabac is another hilltop town Ed frequented as a kid.  We had some lunch and strolled to the top.
