The day dawned sunny and clear and after a 1.5 hour drive north to the Nowra bridge, we boarded the Shoalhaven River Cruise boat for a 2 hour trip upstream. As we boarded the boat, excitement started to show on most of us and for good reason. The boat itself was clean and well stocked with our morning tea supplies, which was included. Our cruise included glorious scenery that was backed by the skipper’s commentary, explaining what we are seeing and its historical highlights. After the cruise we all went to have lunch in the Nowra Servicemen’s Club and the buffet was filled with all the choices of meat, salads, pasta, desserts, etc. No person left that place hungry. Total of 33 people enjoyed a perfect day that provided glorious weather, great scenery and wonderful lunch. Thanks again to our hardworking Social Committee for a great day out.
