Do you want to know what gets the Paddle Steamer Melbourne warmed up!? Now you can find out! We sat with her just this morning, to ask her some very poignant questions, to really get to know her, her personality and just what she looks for in others! So lets get going and "Speed Date" the Paddle Steamer Melbourne!
What makes you happy/sad/angry?
"Cruising along the Murray River, with plenty of people around, lots of children about, makes me happy. I don’t get angry or sad too often, as I am a more, go with the flow kinda gal. Nothing really seems to bother me. Well, except for the wind, as sometimes it makes me have to work harder to get to places."
Where are you from originally?
"I am from a small Victorian town, called Koondrook."
Are you more of a city or country person?
"I am a Country Gal all the way!"
How would your best friend describe you?
"Relaxed & easy going. A little hard to get motivated, especially in the morning. I also get called stubborn a lot too!"
What is your dream job?
"Oh I am totally living my dream job now! Cruising the Murray River, slow-paced, enjoying every moment. I used to slug it out, manual labour style, pulling things outta the way for others! Definitely enjoying life now!"
What colour best describes your personality?
"Red. Not because I am feisty, but because I am a warm soul."
What are you most passionate about?
"I love history, story telling and researching the past. In particular Australian History. I am also big on meditation, mindfulness and taking in all that life offers you within the moment."
What do you consider your best attributes?
"My curves, ain't no other gal on the river got a booty like mine! Plus, I have a 'very' warm heart."
If you have friends coming for supper what would you cook?
"Roast Lamb with 3 Vege & a damper fresh from my firebox."
What’s your favourite wine?
"Full bodied Reds."
What is the most important thing you’re looking for in a person?
"The most important thing I am looking for in a person, is someone who likes to take the time to admire the nature around them. There is beauty to be seen everywhere in this life, and I want someone who will take the time to admire it with me."
That's a wrap with this lovely Lady of the River! Thank you Miss P.S Melbourne for taking the time out from steaming, for our speed date! "Oh that's nothing! Wait until you speed date my sisters! P.V Rothbury & P.B Mundoo!"
See you on the River at Mildura!
