First time on board 2005 images refound
« on: Dec 19, 2014, 12:30 PM »
 Poor old QE2 is certainly suffering at the moment, & her future seems more & more uncertain, however,  I've just found my 1st photos of our 1st visit with her, a short 3day taster to La Rochelle & Channel islands, I really thought these had gone, therefore am so glad to share a few here, they are typical views that abound everywhere, but, these were mine, 1st time on the bit beneath the bridge, & all those things, Oh the excitement, we were on the QE2, does it get any better?, never did for me!
  Anyway, these were better times for her
 
as ever , if in the wrong place our hard working mods will shift, thanks & Merry Christmas  :)

Nice photos Pete and obviously very special to you. It's great that you have found them, like a long lost treasure.
Don't just be part of her past, be part of her history!

Hi Pete - What spectacular photos of our spectacular Lady !  Thank you so much for posting them, and I can imagine how excited you must have been to find them.  They are indeed as Alan has said, "...a long lost treasure."   :)
QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !

Beautiful pictures, Pete! You caught her so well, one can see you wanted the pictures to be just as splendid as the ship herself.

So glad that they brought back treasured memories. A great pre-Christmas present :) .

In those photos she looks so fresh and clean and well kept.  You can't see the wrinkles... she looks brand new.

Marvellous photos.
