Our Homeowners at Lifestyle Bittern haven’t been shy in getting to know each other and are definitely not wasting any time getting together to organise activities.
They recently enjoyed a tour of the HMAS Cerberus, a Royal Australian Navy (RAN) base that serves as the primary training establishment for RAN personnel and located a stone’s throw from Lifestyle Bittern on the Mornington Peninsula.
The morning started with military precision with a tour of the 2 churches (Our Lady Star of the Sea Chapel and St. Mark’s Chapel) on the base. After a few opportunities to take photos they took in a movie and were also treated to a guided-tour of the Cerberus Museum which was a very interesting display of Australia’s Naval history.
At thirteen hundred hours, a lovely lunch was supplied by Navy Canteens Lieut. Andrew Stokes who doubled as the group’s personal guide for the day. This was followed by a bus tour of the base, showing the group many of the Heritage listed buildings there. The day culminated with the monthly Soundwaves concert performed by the RAN Band. A big thank you to all of those that took part and of course to the RAN for a very enjoyable day out.
