During one of my “bus” journeys between Canalazzo and Lido a sudden movement towards the periphery of my vision make me look to the shoreline alongside the Gardens of Remembrance, a stretch of quiet park adjacent to the island of Sant’Elena at the very tip of the city.  As my eyes focused on source of that movement I was surprised to see a middle-aged man dressed in nothing more than swimwear and sports shoes sprint to one of the numerous jetties, leap into the air and beginning swinging, somewhat ape-like, for no apparent reason.  Why he felt the need to begin his exuberant exercise for the benefit of the vaporetto passengers I have no idea, but his haste to begin whilst in view of the vessel suggests it was deliberate.  It takes all sorts.
