No, not on this one.
This is more like it.
We were given a gift voucher for a twilight cruise on the “Southern Swan” for Christmas LAST year and thought we’d better do something about using it before it expired, so we had a lovely weekend in Sydney playing the tourist.
She was built in Norway in the early 1920s as a cargo ship and plied her trade between Norway and Greenland for about 30 years before being pensioned off. An English couple bought her and fitted her out as a yacht to live on, but found it too expensive. While they were in the USA were able to charter her to the Canadian Navy as a training vessel. In the mid 80s she was back in England and took part in the First Fleet re-enactment which saw her sail into Sydney in January 1988. She has remained here ever since.
Wouldn’t this be a terrible job.
The weather was quite breezy and the water choppy, so we motored out towards the heads and then sailed back towards the harbour bridge.
It was so peaceful without the motors running.
It’s a tough life, but someone’s got to do it.
Heading back home.
Mick was taking it all in.
We had a wonderful time. It was a very thoughtful gift.
