AREA HISTORY TOUR ON THE BRISBANE WATER
What a great day it was on Sunday 1st October! The weather was perfect as we motored around the Brisbane Waters on the lovely boat ‘Sorrento’ with Captain George and Peter Rea giving us all the information and history of this beautiful place and the boat building industry.
We were treated to a Powerpoint presentation and also songs by ‘Ladystrum’ the ukulele foursome. One of the songs was co-written by Peter Rea. The girls were happy to perform them as we sailed along the blue waters. We finished off with morning tea and then lunch at the Davistown RSL.
Anges, our exchange student from Norway was aboard as was several visitors from local clubs and a few Rotarians from Sydney. For more information on these tours go to AREA HISTORY TOURS
