Last week or so it was the Queen Elizabeth visiting Melbourne. Today it is Queen Mary, the largest ship to ever sail in Port Phillip Bay and dock at Station Pier.
This is the Volendam which sailed the same morning as the Queen Elizabeth. Doesn't look that big, I commented to R, thinking it was the Queen Elizabeth.
Here we go. This is the real thing. The Queen Elizabeth. Passing is the ferry to Tasmania, The Spirit of Tasmania. Now if you stand next to the Spirit on its own at Station Pier, it seems huge. But as you can see, it is dwarfed by the Queen Elizabeth.
This is the best I could do this morning with the Queen Mary in the half light before dawn. Not good, I know. If you want to see a couple of cracker photos of her, try here and here.
