River Postman Outing

IMG_146930 OFF members took part in one of easier outings of 2015. After a relatively early start in order to get to Hawkesbury River station by 10am, we boarded the boat for a very pleasant 3 hour cruise on the Hawkesbury River.

There was a good commentary and the participants were surprised at the number and extent of the many small settlements that are along the shoreline.

It was a very hot day but the cooling breeze on the water helped to keep us comfortable. After a nice lunch we arrived back at the wharf at 1pm in time to catch the train back to Central and then onto Oatley. IMG_1545

Whilst the day was not as  active as some of our outings, it was a good opportunity to socialise and I think most people enjoyed the day.
