On the weekend I joined a few friends on an outing I've not experienced since childhood: a trip on "Popeye" - a motor launch which runs on Adelaide's River Torrens from the bank adjacent to the CBD to the Zoo on the City's northern perimeter with commentary by the pilot. The first of these launches began operating in 1935 and offer a very relaxing perspective of our city and its environs for locals and visitors alike.
Following are a few shots taken on the journey.....
