After breakfast I took the boat to Buran which is famous for their lace (but very little of it is actually made there any more), and their colorful houses. This was once a fishing village and each fisherman's house was a different, distinctive color so the fishermen could identify it as they neared Burano. The colors are still used today. The trip took about an hour each way because I had to take a vaporetto, then walk about 10 minutes, and then take the boat that probably takes about 40 minutes. I spent most of the day there and did two paintings.
