Re: Off with the Ferries Cruise
The club held its 11th event for the year yesterday, when we held the "Off with the Ferries" cruise.
11 cars consisting of 7 member cars and 2 cars on their second cruise and 2 cars on their first cruise towards membership, headed off towards Wellington for the first ferry of the day. Another member joined us at Wistow, giving us 12 cars.
The ferry at Wellington holds 10 cars but with a bit of close parking we squeezed all 12 cars on to make the first trip across the Murray. The ferry never looked so good.
From Wellington it was a quick trip to Tailem Bend, and then 3 ferry trips were required to get all the cars across. From there it was on to Murray Bridge, where the locals at a footy game took a great deal of interest as we motored past. Over the old railway bridge back over the Murray River and then to Mannum. Using both ferries we crossed the Murray again in one trip and then went down to the park on the riverside for lunch. Where another member joined us, making 13 cars.
After lunch, we hit the Purnong Ferry and then the Walkers Flat Ferry, after which we stopped for afternoon tea at Swan Reach, and after a quick committee huddle the 2 members on their second cruise were invited to join the club, which they did.
So it was then over the last ferry of the day at Swan Reach and on to Gawler where 30 odd people from the club had tea at Fasta Pasta. from there members headed off home at different times.
Good day was had by all, and we look forward to our next run on 6th June which is The Hills and Dinner cruise, so stay tuned.
