Headin' Home

I caught sight of these two while waiting for a vaporetto one early evening near the Accademia Bridge.

The Grand Canal was surprisingly quiet, and they were rowing alongside each other at a leisurely pace, carrying on a conversation as they went.
Both gondolas were buttoned up for the night, and by all appearances, they were heading home after a long day's work.

Maybe I'm biased, but gondoliering has got to be one of the coolest jobs in the world.
