Crossing to Italy

Aug. 23 and the weather is very favorable for a crossing.
Total distance from Porec to Venice is 51 nm.  We left at 07.30 hr and arrived at the entrance to Venice at 14.45 hr.
                                 Could not have asked for calmer seas for a crossing.

The entrance to the main Venice Canal. Unfortunately we entered under somewhat overcast sky,s. What struck us is the wide open entrance to Venice.

Wide open but only the main channel is over 30 feet deep. Get off the channel, and as we saw small boats were anchored out in 3 feet of water (or less) and people stepped off the boat and were wondering around in the shallow waters. They might have been clamming!?!? (my guess)
