One of my favorite gondoliers here at Gondola Adventures, is Steve Elkins.
He found us (way back when) on a date, and just felt drawn to the gondolas.
That was many years ago, and he inevitably became my right-hand-man for quite a long time.
As things usually go, Steve finally moved on to more "serious" pursuits than messing around with boats (and dealing with a crazy boss).
But as is common with gondoliers in my operation, he comes back when his schedule allows, and is "there for me" when I need him - a fact that is not lost with me.
Over the years I've come to really appreciate my gondoliers, especially those who've gone above and beyond. I'm happy to report that there have been many.
Steve is one of those "alumni gondoliers" who I hope to see return again and again for many years.
