This had better be the last one. On her way to loud singing of 'Rule Britannia' etc. Next stop N.Y.

Jist came across some pictures we took last month when the QM2 came to Halifax, Nova Scotia in early October. Happened to find a picture of the old QM a few days later. Interesting juxtaposition. Tried to paste them here, but failed "because it contained errors", doh, so what is new?
What an enormous ship she is! Got somepictures of her moored next to a normal cruise ship. I ahd already thought the cruise ship was as tall as a skyscraper. Hard to beleive those things can stay afloat,isn't it?

In my life recently there have been odd coincidences around both the Concorde and the QM2. I wonder if maybe we just are more aware of certain events when we are already in an receptive mental state. Maybe we are born looking for patterns in everything.

If I hadn't been so busy looking after my company, I would've noticed this thread earlier and then another weird coincidence would've really twanged my wee brain.

ohmy.gif can I join in again, please?
I guess I 'fell off' some time back but my interest in the Glasgow Board and ships has not lessened - health problems kind of got in the way - my own and hubby requiring quad by-pass and prostrate surgery - all in the space of a few months.
I did actually book passage on the QM2 (in one of those so called 'hull cabins') but decided to cancel - 6 days on her would have proved exhausting - she's just too big for my liking! Cunard's marketing of her was, in my mind less than honest. That rates are now reduced seems to bear that out. How she will fair in many Caribbean ports is questionable .

Guess much depends on what cruising/crossing means to each individual. For me, the ship is the 'destination' - days at sea when the ship can be explored and enjoyed are the attraction for me - 5 hours ashore do little for me!

We've 'fallen in love' with an Holland American Line ship - The Prinsendam - a mere 38,000 tons - did a crossing on her last November ('04) and planned another for August '05 - to celebrate our 28th Anniversary - 'twas not to be - by-pass and prostrate surgery got in the way. Rescheduled for a Nov. 9th'05 sailing from Lisbon, that also had to be cancelled - I was carted off to hospital on Nov.6th. 'Tis said that only the good die young (I'm a believer!:D) - came home last Friday (Nov. 11). Don't have much breath or energy right now but browsing the boards is possible.

I was saddened to read of our Bard's passing - we had some interesting exchanges - I wish I'd known her better..

Catherine, I hope things worked out well for your Mum.

I'm waaaaay off topic! - forgive this transgression, just this once, please?

F.
