On Monday we went on a lunch cruise on the Paddle Steamer Emmylou. The weather was perfect, lots of winter sun with a few clouds to cool you down from time to time. It was soooo relaxing. The rhythmic slap of the paddles in the background while we sat at the back of the boat watching the wake and the forested banks as they passed by, helped along with a glass or two of Chardonnay and a meal of flathead tails. Along the way we had a good view of the refurbushed Echuca Wharf.
The Murray is very full, so we were able to see over the banks along the journey, which added to the interest.
Today, Wednesday, we travelled east from Echuce along the Murray, crossed the Goulbourn River to Cape Horn Vineyard to enjoy a wood fired oven cooked pizza washed down with their rose. It was delicious and well worth the drive.
