Have you been on a houseboat!

I took this photo quite a few years ago in Mildura which is 300klms away from Broken Hill and a place my family and I have visited quite often.

One visit my husband and two children made to Mildura we decided to go for a ride on one of the many houseboats they have for visitors.

I was quite hesitant as I cannot swim and therefore try to stay away from deep water if possible.

We found one that provided a lunch time cruise for 3 hours and we bought our tickets.

It was nothing like I thought it would be it was wonderful so relaxing.

There are huge windows in the covered section so whilst you are eating you can see out at the magnificent river and surrounding environment.

After lunch you could go and sit outside and it was a lovely day.

We went through two locks which were fun.

The trip was wonderful and I recommend it to anyone even if you cannot swim.

I have never been on a houseboat. This sounds very exciting

Whilst I have never been on a houseboat, I have been on various types of waterborne craft, including a cruise ship (which caught on fire shortly before we returned to port), a riverboat/restaurant, and a pleasure boat (which the captain/owner) let me steer on the Miami River when I was 12.
