Did the boat tour yesterday. Very interesting narrative from Captain George who is a character. Really enjoyed it albeit was a bit short only an hour. Stunning scenery and fabulous weather added to enjoyment.

Lovely boat tour of the lake, with commentary by Captain George, who is a character. He does Yeats commentary, had us reciting poetry with him, and pipes in appropriate music. It was an informative and entertaining hour on the lake.
