A Summer Retreat, North of Burano
The unregulated growth, or encouragement, of tourism in Venice makes it harder and harder to find a place to escape from the invading masses. Even the further reaches of the lagoon are not safe from private tourist or party boats, the latter thumping with trashy dance music both day and night.
Above, a boat of locals takes refuge from tour boats in a waterway too shallow to allow for the latters' passage--though, alas, the sound from the disco boats carries loud and clear across the open lagoon.
