Hi Isabelle
'Funnily enough'
I was watching out for the Perseid Shower last night - Just one solitary star shooting at unbelievably fast speed across from NE to SW,  at midnight last night - and I was thinking exactly the same thing too!

Also - the night before last I dreamt of QE2 - an extremely rare event, and I can remember feeling absolutely delighted - our cabin had a big window as well as a porthole!! It was in the same deepish sort of 'apricot' colours as the cabin that Rob had taken a photo of on his last trip (3 Deck, I reckoned!). The carpets felt the same underfoot, it was all so comfortable - including the chairs along the covered promenade alongside the Queens Room - the only difficulty was trying to identify where our cabin was from outside - looking at the hull!
Good Luck with clear skies tonight!

PS - Just wondering whether some of the QE2 Crew members have dreams about QE2 too....!

(I'm fairly certain there is a Dreaming about QE2 Topic - I'm sorry as this probably belongs there too!)

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

In my younger days my Great Granny played the organ and her piece was Y Viva Espana, dont ask me why she played it, but play it she did, with gutso.

Fast forward to 6th October 1988. Im on the boat deck edging away from the berth, and crackling over the tannoy comes the same tune..and off we sailed to Spain, Ibiza, Cannes, Barcelona Gib and Lisbon.A 9 day cruise. We battled  storms that night leaving the berth, Nearly grounded on the IOW and the 2nd night l was out on deck late at night experiencing the unusual sensation of hot weather at night, next day we anchored in Ibiza and l went   ashore with an officer for a beer in for me what was extreme heat .It was for me a very special cruise ..and a long association with the Hotel Managers Table and all at 19 years old.

From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

Those were the days... now remind me of QE2 :

Mary Hopkins 1968 -- just one year before QE2 set sail for the first time!
