Moments – Sea Breeze


As I stood on the Venetian vaporetti towards Lido, the sun was slowly setting, lazily giving off a hazy warmth which was a faint shadow of that noon’s heat. The light created a dazzling display of shimmery diamonds on the surface of the canals.

The warmth was complemented by a gentle cool breeze coming from the sea and you could hear the fizzing of the sea foam along the sides of the boat. I thought about how, in several decades, Venice would be inhabited by mermaids, fish and crabs as the sea slowly overtakes the city. Corals will be the new spiralling turrets.
