Sailing Out of Venice
Today we sailed away from Venice around 5:30 PM. It was fascinating to see the city from so high up, on the huge Celebrity Silhouette, which holds 3,000 people. Looking down on the rooftops of the old city was a unique experience, and soon the ship passed by the Lido, headed out to sea. We met some fellow passengers at one of the bars before going to the dining room where we were seated at a table with couples from North Carolina, London and Annapolis, MD. After dinner Jim caught part of the show in the theater, but Dan returned to our stateroom. Tomorrow Jim turns into a seal again, heading underwater at the Dubrovnik Sea World. Dan will be on a land excursion, so stay tuned for our adventures in Croatia.—Dan
