Wow, so I just typed a bunch of stuff on Part 8 and then realized that Part 7 hadn't been published yet! Oops. Guess it's going to be a two-fer today.
After the ride on the St. Petersburg metro, we met up with some other tour groups and did a cruise on the Neva River. It was too cold to really want to spend a lot of time out on the deck taking pictures, though, so mostly Lee and I stayed inside the boat. Lee did brave the cold for a little bit to take some pictures.
There's part of the Hermitage. Seriously huge.
I think that red tower-y thing is a lighthouse?
There's the Peter and Paul Fortress; we visited it later on in our tour.
Another boat...man, my commentary is fascinating.
Another building along the canal and sadly I have no idea what it is.
Lee tried very hard to get a riverside shot of the Church of the Spilled Blood, but there was always something in front of it.
Ok, keep scrolling down for Part 8!
