I stopped by Sunset Gondola recently and found a few things missing.
Namely, gondolas. All three of the gondolas were gone - out on cruises.
From a gondola operator's perspective, it was a beautiful thing.
In this economy, even more so.
As much as we love to look out on our fleet and admire the curves of our sleek Venetian boats, seeing them absent because they are busy with passengers is even better.
And while Sunset Gondola isn't my operation, Tim is a friend and I'm happy to see him doing well.
Seeing boats out like that also gives me hope for the economy.
This is a beautiful picture, not because of what you see, but because of what you don't see.
