River boat cruising…

Catherine and I went on a day cruise up the Hunter River today, from Newcastle to Morpeth.

There were just enough clouds to make the sky interesting, all day long.

The scenery along the way was lovely.

We mostly had the river to ourselves, except for the occasional fishermen.

I did figure out that the concrete ‘pencils’ I saw a couple of days ago were probably posts :-).

Farms and ranches lined the way.

Morpeth is a scenic small village where were spent 2 hours shopping (of course) and having lunch.

Then it was back to the boat for the return trip!

Really relaxing is not something I do much of. This was a day of enforced relaxation… no work, no sewing, no internet. Amazing!
