Sunset to Mothers 2 - Marinere


After dinner and socializing, announcements were made.
As is often the case, a couple of Tim's gondoliers were inducted into the Order of the Marinere - gondoliers who have reached a level of ability that they are worthy of wearing the traditional white overshirt known as a "marinera".

Tim begins his announcement.
 
Toasting is an important component, of course.
 
 "Ricardo di Montagna" is presented with a crisp white marinera.
 
 It fits well, and the new inductee raises a toast with Tim and Stefano.
 
 Nico is the next one to be tapped in.
 
All smiles as the shirt goes on.
 
New and previous members raise a toast.
From left to right: "Rotto Sorriso", Nico, Tim, Stefano, and "Ricardo di Montagna".
