IMG_0606a.jpg--A pair of inexpensive, disposable boots were needed occasionally during the Aqua Alta (High Water) that we encountered in Venice. On a couple of days during our visit, sirens sounded to alert the city that a tidal surge was about to put canal water over the sidewalks and possibly into buildings--for brief periods. The number and severity of Aqua Alta episodes depend on seasonal tides and weather conditions; our encounter with AA was unusual for this time of year.
