Departing Rotterdam with one of several water salutes!2 viewsMy Dad's (James A Hypher's) photo from Friday 4th August 2006 (14 years ago today! - day of uploading this photo). We had a wonderful send off from Rotterdam including a choir, but almost girted the tug off our stern with our sheer power and torque even at 72rpm as we left the cruise terminal. My Uncle and Auntie watching from the dockside said the tug master only just recovered and their photos show how dicey it was. Family friend and fellow ship enthusiast Stephen Macey is in the photo.Thomas Hypher00000

To cold to enjoy the pool near Cape Horn2 viewsIt seems noone is interested in enjoying the pool while QE2 rounded Cape Horn during the world cruise in February 2008. In the distance you can see Cape Horn and its surrounding Islands. It was far to cold and to windy at the southernmost point of the world before antarctica.Katharina Ernst00000
