We hadn't even reached the end of the fondamenta before we got inconfutable evidence that in spite of the blasting wind and rain and water up to our thighs that the tide had turned: Under the boats, the anguele were all facing upstream, against the tide.

It amuses me to see boats floating up so high.  In a really serious acqua alta, they can begin to slip off the top of their pilings, though tying them to the barrier would be just as bad, considering that the force of the tide (either rising or falling) can pull the boat down on one side.  The the boat fills with water.

As usual, somebody had left a bag of garbage out on the street.  You can't pick them all up as they float around and away, but this was the first one we came across and Lino decided he had to do something about it.  Nobody would have noticed, or cared, but I was impressed and I know he felt better.
