What a super day, the
sun was shining the temperature was perfect,
just right for the three river cruise.
We arrived in good
time; and ate our picnic lunches then boarded
the Ocean Scene without problems, found our
seats and readied ourselves for a super cruise.
First we left Ocean Village, turned right
into the River Itchen towards Southampton water and on the way the
captain pointed out places of interest and
soon we reached Southampton water,
unfortunately there weren’t any huge boats
or liners in port, but very interesting
nevertheless, there were a number of cargo
boats going past, off to far flung places no
doubt, but the large cruise ships had left
port a few days earlier for their voyages.
Half way across
Southampton water afternoon cream tea was
served, very naughty, but very nice and we
ate this eagerly as the boat weaved through dozens of
moored boats along the river Hamble and we could see
many very expensive homes along the shoreline.
A mile or so up we turned around and returned
and then cruised up the river Test for a few
miles before making a u-turn for the return
to Ocean Village.
ventured upstairs for
the return journey to take in the air, and
stayed there until we moored up at Ocean
Village, a great little cruise indeed, a big
thanks for all those involve in the
organisation, we all enjoyed it.
