I celebrate my birthday by charting a sailboat for a tour on the lagoon.
There's no wind.
Tommaso is a knowledgeable guide and understands quickly that I already know the basics. We pass Poveglia, stop on Malamocco for some repairs, have lunch on San Erasmo, drive through Vignole and spot San Francesco del Deserto from far. Some of the views have been blocked my the new constructions that should slow down water getting into the city. These also slow down water exiting the city.
Then back to Venice through Murano. To close up I visit the music museum in San Maurizio church.
