Palma could feel the music Palmina played on her Lute for him.
Palma smiled. He heard her playing in his inner heart.

As they saw this Peony Gondola Vision Palmina asked: „What did you do after I played this Melody? Hmm Palma?“
Palma looked shy and answered: “ I…I…I heard that you played an other Melody after you Played our ‚I miss you melody…and then…“
Palma was shy.
Palmina smiled and asked:“ Hmmm? What did you do in our Peony Gondola hour after I played the melody….Hmmmm?“
„Later, I went to the San Marco Place…“, Palma said and they continued to see their Peony Gondola dream and they saw this:

02 Gondola along the Big Promenade
Palma went in the direction of the San Marco Place, but he has to turn left and go then a while a short way along the big Promenade ‚Riva di Siavoni‘ till he arrived on San Marco Place.
03 San Marco Cathedral
He went a few time along the San Marco Place to see the two Pigeons.
04 Dogans Palace on San Marco Place
But now he felt that Palmina’s ship is coming.

He went back to the water side of the San Marco Place to look if Palmina’s Ship is visible.

The moon made a bright light over Venice and the stars shined friendly.
The lagoon water was calm and the reflection of the moon and the stars looked peacefully.

Palmina went up to see the calm sea on her ship, to fell the soft wind in her beautiful hairs, to see Venice slowly coming.
She played very beautiful on her lute and smiled.

Slowly the horizon turned brighter and in a while the sun will rise over the sea.
Normally the ships coming from outside had to wait up to 40 days in the 16th century till they where allowed to enter the lagoon water of Venice.
But Palma il Giovane could arrange it that the ship which was on his way to Venice could pass without any waiting.
Maybe the Republic of Venice knows also who Palmina’s relatives were and the ship and its passengers were threat as V.I.P.s.
The officers looked surprised as the ship passed the control-harbour near todays „Lido“
„Oh, Look a princess is lute playing… This is the V.I.P. ship we should allow passing and entering the waters of Venice“ –
„How beautiful she plays…“
The Officers looked wondering and looked behind the slowly moving ship.

Palma standing on the San Marco Place looked expecting in the East direction and played on his Mandolin.
Palmina played coming with her ship – Palma played waiting with his Mandolin – and the are now coming closer and closer – in their hearts there is no physical distance
09 Piazza San Marco at sunrise Venice
Slowly, far on the east-south horizon the sun raised bright and the ship of Palmina was visible.
A few birds flew at the morning sky.
In a few minutes the ship will stand directly on the left side of the left column at the San Marco Place.
Palma smiled and played his Mandolin.

As they saw this beautiful Peony Gondola Vision Palmina took her Pipa Lute and Palma took his Viola da braccio.
„Let us play our ‚8 Soli for Pipa and Viola'“, Palmina said innocently.
