Enjoying the sail down the Clyde in the sunshine.

Not really jealous! Honestly  ???

I'm so envious. I would have dearly loved to have come up for the weekend and seen you all, but the trip to Dubai, OZ & NZ at the end of the year means I have to watch my spending. Hopefully this won't be the last get together.

Have a wonderful day on Waverley and look forward to seeing your photos.

What a fantastic day! My (ours as I dragged hubbie along too but obviously Rosie does the same) first QE2 forum get together and hopefully not the last. Loved meeting you all last night at the Crowne Plaza and enjoyed all the jokes and stories today as well as the (unusually) wonderful Scottish sunshine. Safe journey home to Peter and Tom, Helen and Robert, Rosie and Simon and Lynda and Tom. Also Robert who got on at Greenock. Lots of great photos which I will organise asap but think Rob and John will get there first.

 :) So pleased the weather held for you all, as I say to my friends in Yorkshire, when the sun shines in Scotland there's no better place.

We had a wonderful two days meeting new friends and meeting up with old friends.  Will post photos when I get home. 

Thanks to everyone for a fantastic time and looking forward to next year's get together.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hoping to be in Scottish waters with Lone Gerd next year, so hopefully we may be able to join you. Looking forward to it already!

Another great day on the Waverley with the forum friends.  We must do this again next year Rob.
