The "Lazy Drop"
Here in Newport, as in many other US gondola locations,
we offer a message-in-a-bottle option, where the client can propose,
or deliver a birthday or anniversary message.
It's printed, rolled, and placed in a corked bottle before the cruise,
and somewhere along the route, the gondolier places it in the water and doubles back to have the intended recipient retrieve it.
As you might image, we all have our preferred methods
of placing the bottle in the water.
Here we see Hunter's "Lazy Drop" method.
It's stealthy, creates no splashing sound,
and as you can see - it makes for a great photo.
