about venice in words & pics, with and without my 9-year-old son

On the day after Easter--which is a holiday itself in Italy known as "Pasquetta"--it is a tradition for Italians to leave the town or city where they live and go for a picnik in the countryside. In Venice the tradition is for families who live in the city to take their boat and picnik on one of the less populous, rural islands in the lagoon.
But as the photo above shows, it's not so simple for a family in their little boat to get away from it all these days in the lagoon... Just as on terra firma, there's traffic to contend with.
