A day of two halves - firstly grey sleeting rain, but eventually a blue patchwork - saw me and my gals out on the harbour farewelling Cunard's 'Queen Elizabeth' (2010 incarnation).
There were four cruise liners in the harbour come midday: Queen Mary 2 docked at Garden Island; Queen Elizabeth docked in Sydney Cove; Fred Olsen's 'Balmoral' heaved to in Athol Bight; and, Regent's 'Seven Seas Voyager' docked on the western side of the Bridge, at Barangaroo.
We sat off Kirribilli Point in the tiny Rossmore Ferry, 'Proclaim', having already choofed up the Parramatta River to survey the woeful passenger processing facility for cruise passengers (but then maybe the shipping companies should contribute more), then down to Garden Island to get up-close-and-personal with the QM.
These two liners are BIG boats, as I hope this post illustrates. After a special day of remembrance tomorrow, I will continue with the cruise ships over the weekend.
