It took us around 40 minutes to find somewhere suitable for breakfast, but it was worth it.

The tide was high - so high parts of the square were under water.

We then caught a water bus to the Lido, an island that is part of Venice, but very different - more modern.

It has a beach and there was kiting, but too windy for my kite (which I didn't take).

We got off a stop early on the return and walked back.

I spend an hour in the sun in San Marco square reading and watching all the tourists.

On the way back to the apartment, I observed an old man, walking with small and uncertain steps arrive at one of the numerous bridges, where he stopped.

I gave him my arm and we slowly went up and down the other side. When he was safely on flat ground, he blew me a kiss and I bade him ciao.
