First, I'd like to say Bon Voyage and safe travels to Kathy (Trekcapri) who leaves for Scotland tomorrow! Have a great time, and I can't wait to read all about it (and see your photos).
Back to my ramblings about my day at Torcello (at the pace I'm going, it's going to take me a month to blog about that one day!).
There are a bunch of these old well-heads on Torcello, and several of them have cool carvings on them. This cube-shaped one with a Greek cross on each side is probably the oldest vera da pozzo in the lagoon (eighth century or so).
Many of the well-heads in Venice have carvings of water jugs on them, and several on Torcello did too~
I like the tree on this one~

Another water jug~
Interesting contrast between my photo and a vintage postcard. Not sure when the photo on the post card was taken, but the other two big stone vessels next to the well-head weren't there and neither were the trees~
