Sunrise On Isola Di San Clemente Venice
Photograph - Photograph
We wake at dawn on the Isola di San Clemente about one mile across the Grand Canal from St. Marks Square Venice. Our room is in a former monastery, now a deluxe hotel. Unlike Venice, it's quiet, only the sounds of birdsongs in the ancient trees are heard. That and the quiet rhythmic lapping of the water on the boat dock. Venice awakens and it's lifeblood, it's canals start to throb with life. Soon the wakes from thousands of boats will turn the now quiet ripples into the slapping of choppy waves.
