Lunch over we still have time for more shopping. Susan buys lots of gifts and is really crossing items of her Xmas gift list and I buy an inexpensive but very pretty watch. We decide to walk back to the dock as we do not want to miss the ferry. We get lucky, it is the fast ferry and we zip back to St Mark's.
