QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 - alongside

After sailing from Southampton on Wednesday 1 October, the call by QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 at Cherbourg the following morning was cancelled due to poor weather and instead she proceeded directly to Cobh, in southern Ireland, where she lay for an extra day. Her next port was Liverpool, then it was across the Irish Sea to Belfast before heading for the Clyde.

At each port, QUEEN ELIZABETH 2 was given enthusiastic send offs, including massive fireworks displays prior to her departure.

There can have been few ships flying the Red Ensign that have attracted such attention as QUEEN ELIZABETH 2, which has attracted huge crowds of spectators wherever she has sailed.

I was at Greenock on Sunday afternoon to see her for the final time on the Clyde, as I left the dockside I had a lump in my throat. She is a wonderfull sight. Thanks for posting the evening pictures.
