Cruising the Huon River
Early this morning we got a different view of the Huon, at a business breakfast hosted by Franklin Eco Cruises and the local Business Enterprise Centre. After a very wet and windy night, the river was amazingly calm. Living here, we still haven't tried out all the experiences a tourist might and it was our first trip up the river on the Lady Jane II. While we enjoyed the view, munched bacon and egg rolls and warmed up with a coffee, business owner and Huon Valley councillor Mike Wilson gave us a short potted history of his life in business mixed in with history of the local area and the waterways. We are looking forward to getting out there soon in our little tinnie.
