On Sunday 24th June 21 DATA members, family & friends courageously faced a cold Melbourne day. Thank goodness it wasn’t raining but it was cold. The cruise up the Maribyrnong River was very informative. The captain Peter Somerville, 83 years old has been working on the Blackbeard ferry for 38 years. He knows everything about the area, so all on board learnt something new. After the cruise, coffee & cake at the Happy River Cafe was the go. It was a lovely day. Some people want to do it again. Next time it will be in the warmer weather, not that Melbourne weather is predictable.
