gondola on Lake Merritt

No, your eyes are not deceiving you.  There is indeed a gondola for hire on the lake.  In fact, there are now two of them.  Business must be good.  The weather for Love our Lake Day was mild even if the sun kept darting behing clouds.  Linked to Skywatch Friday.

  13. It even looks as if the gondolier is in costume. Wonder if it was all imported from Italy, or home-grown?
