Greener Grass, Bluer Water

photo by Nereo Zane

It may be a bold statement, but living in Southern California,
I know that I'm in one of the best places to call home. 
People from all over the country and many other countries go to great lengths to get here and stay here.
Now perhaps this is a prime example of the "grass is always greener" syndrome, but as I thumb through the photos in this link, all I can think of is how I'd love to be calling Venice my home.

Not long ago Nereo Zane was on the water with his Nikon to capture images of the action as youngsters and young ladies squared off in the lagoon in a series of races.

Regate circuito intersocietario (2^ tappa)

As I go through the sequence of images, I recognize places, people,
and even boats that I recognize.  I think about how great it must be to participate and/or watch your kids participate in such contests. 
I see Bepi Suste at the award ceremony (along with some other familiar faces), and I think about how living in the Veneto must be amazing.
I wonder if the water is bluer there.
