This evening, a few of us gondoliers from California and Minnesota
showed up on the docks in Providence, to exchange hugs with our
friends from Rhode Island, and spend a little time rowing together
and getting to know the boats we'll be competing on tomorrow and Sunday.
Here are a few shots I snapped (when I wasn't rowing).
