On a drizzly Sunday morning, 28th April, 24 DATA members and friends braved the Melbourne weather for the Melbourne River Cruise. It was a cold day but everyone was rugged up.
The hour journey from Federation Square to Gem pier in Williamstown was smooth and there were many sights to see as pointed out by the captain. Lunch at the Custom House was enjoyable and the meals were big.
The Maritime Museum was a great hit. It was free to enter and there are many things to see.
- Steve Irwin flagship docked at Williamstown was used by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to campaign against whaling.
- The Bluestone morgue was constructed by convicts. Apparently, ghosts frequent the morgue.
It was an enjoyable day overall. It was nice to see some different faces.
See you at the next outing.
