Do you know, I could really kick myself - I've been to Long Beach... and I didn't go to see Queen Mary!

I will be having brunch on QM on March 22 and a personal tour given by friends that I met on QM2 in January.  I've been once before but didn't take the time for a full tour so I am really looking forward to this visit.

I posted this on my 'introduce yourself' post recently but for those that hadn't seen it I've put together a site with photos and videos from my trip to the Queen Mary in 2006.  There is a little virtual tour in there as well.

I just "drove" down the street and watched her funnels appear in the distance - reliving a journey i made 11 years ago!  Fantastic!

Thanks for the directions Captain Rob - I've just taken a virtual wander there myself for purposes of research  ::)
And have decided that, yes, I do need to visit there pretty damn soon and see her for myself.

(The wonders of google eh? But I'm still undecided as to whether its a technological advance or just another tool for internet stalkery  :-\  ???)

Hi Richard

Your Queen Mary website is superb.  Thanks for posting it again, I missed it the first time...

Ali.
Im heading that way in October, if you want to join up, heck l might even let you by me lunch, l cant decide one night or two and really fancy the idea of a Royality Suite, but the thought of little old me in that big cabin and the ghosts..... ??? But so far l do like what l have seen, and maybe a midnight visit to some of the out of the way places...
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

That is just a fantastic photo, the new Mary meeting the old Mary. Dare I say that both ships look good, taking into account the changes in naval architecture in the last 80 years. And I add my fervent hope that QE2 ends up looking as nice as the Queen Mary (and not transmogrified into some monstrosity) For all Queen Mary's mishaps and mis management, she still contrives to look regal and proud.

That is a super photo indeed

I received this leaflet from a friend who visited her last year.
