Letís hope Gary can get his pictures on board - mine are blurred (due to a slow shutter speed. Thatís my excuse anyway!). In the meantime Iím posting some of mine in the hope that they reveal the atmosphere of the occasion.
The first pic is of the queue to get on the catarmaran - getting cold and very wet.
Fortunately the rain then eased off and finally stopped.

Taking up her position for the fireworks (with the other two queens facing each other at their berths).

Passing Queen Victoria

Our trip ended before the Queen Elizabeth left. (She was going to have to turn on setting off.)
It was a great experience. We got home at 1 a.m.!
