Crab Claw Cruise
In the cool of the morning 94 Probarians from all four Darwin clubs gathered in anticipation to board buses taking them to the ferry terminal. The harbour was left behind, and familiar features were pointed out by the captain. Morning tea was served, and acquaintances renewed in garrulous chatter. Others admired the brilliant day and the calm seas.
Arrival at Crab Claw resort required a certain amount of agility, and in some cases assistance, to disembark down the long gang plank. All this effort was well rewarded by the magnificent sea food banquet and good company. Some more intrepid souls went swimming. The receding tide exposed a greater expanse of beach to cross, and needed increased effort to embark - up the gang plank.
As the resort disappeared, the chatter continued along with some nanna naps. Late in the afternoon the entry into the harbour was accompanied with some "light chop" turning some passengers without sea legs a little green. Safely back on land and onto waiting buses the smiles told that all enjoyed the well organised, really great day of Friendship, Fellowship and FUN.
