It had been a long day, and I was longing to go back to my little island to have a rest in the hotel before going out for something to eat for dinner. I saw the vaporetti was ready to leave when I arrived and I ran towards it, asking "Murano?" "Si, signora". And I jumped on board.
The boat was different from the ones I usually take, and when we came to the island it didn´t stop at the usual place. But there are several stops on Murano, and when it stopped next I didn´t leave the boat. I can wait for the next, I told myself.
The only problem was that the next stop was not Murano at all, but Vignole, another island in the Laguna. I have never been to Vignole, well, now I have, and I wouldn´t have minded going there if the time was right. Which is was not. Can you imagine, I felt quite flat! "Oh, my! What to do now?" I started to say something to the boatman. He just looked at me and smiled broadly. "Wait here. Another boat will come in five minutes. It will take you back to Murano."
I remembered we had driven trough wonderful birdland on our way out,
so I took my camera and walked out on deck to do some birding.
And had a most wonderful ride back.
