Last week, a cruise ship was due to arrive at Robe, on South Australia’s Limestone Coast. For months, the locals had been readying themselves for this unusual event, and there was an air of excitement about the town.
Flags were flying, a beautiful day had dawned, a team of volunteers was waiting to assist passengers and to show them about the town and a special farmer’s market was setting up in the main street but…… at the very last moment, literally, the ship sailed past……………. to the great disappointment of all. Several tour buses had arrived from other towns to take passengers on trips, and many people had travelled a distance to see the ship, all to no avail.
Thanks P&O – we will remember this. Here’s some of what you missed out on.
