ECO River Cruise

Today we took in the views from the Port Jet Eco River Cruise Boat.
It was the perfect day with lots of sunshine and clear skies.
The Hasting River Oyster farms were scattered along the route.
An old Sydney ferry waiting to be renovated for river cruises.
This old place was once used by oyster farmers.
Now fish, oysters and other marine life attached themselves to anything submerged.
Mangroves appear as nature intended up and down the north side of the river.
An Osprey watched all the humans floating by in the cruise boat.
Pelicans were the only other birds we sited.
Oyster farms, mangroves and then the mountains in the background made the perfect view.
Under the only bridge connecting the southern shore to the northern shore.
Captain Jake at the helm.
Osprey Nest.
Jodie a wildlife photographer was on board and told us this is a Female Osprey.
Bridge crossing the Hastings River.
Norm took a great photo here of a couple of many pelicans we saw on the two hour cruise.

Unfortunately, there were no signs of resident dolphins or other wildlife which we were assured by the crew was unusual. Perhaps it was the relaxing afternoon that kept them home.
