Sounds a bit like a meal, like Surf and Turf etc. But not this time. It was my husband’s birthday and he’s a fan of all things steam. Generally he’s also exceptionally difficult to buy presents for. But again, not this time. Steamrail run a number of trips through the year, and this one just happened to be at the perfect time for a birthday present.
We travelled in this train to Geelong, had a leisurely lunch, then boarded the (diesel…although it used to be steam) ferry for a gentle sail back to Melbourne. It is true that some of the younger members of the family found the return trip a tad longer than they would have liked, but we played cards and (lest you think technology stayed away) Fruit Ninja.
I snapped these two several times, but only realised later that they were not just flying aimlessly, that one was after the fish the other had caught.
