The weather was darn near perfect.
I decided to see if I could get a few decent shots of the gondola operation there in Alamitos Bay.
A double-rower or "two oared American gondola" as they are called at the operation there, navigates between brightly colored kayaks.
Another two-oared gondola crosses Alamitos Bay.
A varnished pupparin glides through a Naples Neighborhood.
This is one of only two pupparini in the Americas.
The other one is in Sunset Gondola's fleet.
A traditionally rowed, locally-built gondola cruises by.
A similar gondola makes an appearance, this one without a ferro. These boats were built at the legendary Hill's Marine (now closed) by Jim Oberst, often with the assistance of gondoliers.
One more double-rower loaded with six passengers, moves on sparkling water.
