Beautiful sunny day to watch nature at it’s best while cruising gently along the River Murray.
Sandra & James hospitality while cruising was great and enjoying a platter and complimentary drink. James knowledge of the different sites along the way was very interesting. Enjoying the fresh breeze out on the bow of the boat sipping on a glass of bubbly is always pleasure.
Lunch at Banrock was very tasty end to the cruise. Then safely taken by bus back to Waikerie.
