Drive from Dolomites to Venice, September 30, 2016

Today we left the Alpine apartment and took an awesome drive back to Venice!  We walked through this underground tunnel to Carezza Rainbow Lake at the foot of the Dolomites.  According to legend, a beautiful water nymph lived in the pristine waters of Lake Carezza.  One day, while braiding her hair, the sorcerer Masare was overcome by the sound of the nymph as she sang to herself.  Head over heels in love, he sought the help of a witch to make the nymph his own.  The plan was for the sorcerer to dress as a jewelry salesman and cast a rainbow across the lake.  Unfortunately, he forgot to dress as a jeweler and the nymph evaded his trap and has not been seen since.  Distraught at his mistake, the sorcerer smashed the rainbow into a million pieces over the lake, therefore radiating the waters to this day!

Back to Venice with a water taxi to our next apartment.

Perfect sunset for a great day!
