I've been slow to hop on board the boater hat trend. In fact, I haven't. Being five foot two, I don't need to plant a bottle cap on my head thusly and thereby verily taking another couple of inches off the overall demeanour of my height. No, thank ye.
But ~ today's illustrated tour of Venice called for it, and while I don't believe in air-brushing, I'm not averse to adding a foot to my stature when paint-brushing. Boater Hat Crisis: averted.

Happy Venerdi in Venice to you !
