Due Caorline

photo by Nereo ZaneNereo took this shot the other day on a row with the GSVVM.
They were making their usual Saturday trip into Venice to stop at the fish market.
I've done this row myself, and it's a lot of fun.

The guys decide which boat (or boats) to take based on how many people show up that morning.
In this case there were enough rowers to fill two caorlinas.
The speed and mood of the row usually depends on the personalities on board.
And if there should happen to be a wide-eyed American guy on board, you can bet there will be some jokes, delivered in heavy Venetian dialect, interspersed with words like "California" or "Texas", followed by a lot of laughing.
Not that I'd know anything about that.
