Midi - Cruising Down the River ...
... and enjoy the comfort of the Odyssey Cruise
A luxurary cruiser compared to the one below, which was the one
we took the children on ... many years ago :-)
Our trip on the Rosney - built 1913
The Tamar River is 70km's long and is the longest navigatable
tidal estuary, along the way we saw black swans, pelicans, sea eagles
and sometimes, if you are lucky, friendly dolphins and/or seals too.
We were not that lucky Duh!
With me & Mother-in-Law ......... all aboard & ready to go!
Many families were aboard and it wasn't long before all the kids
played games as we leisurely cruised along, it was a slow day trip
in those days.
At the turning around point was a place called Whirlpool Reach,
it was fascinating cruising through these busy, busy whirlpools,
even a little scary.
Today - the criuse on the Odyssey is much more "sophisticated"
But the river never loses its charm!
Thank you for visiting.
