Time to pack up for London!
08.09.2008 - 09.09.2008 16 °C
We have been quite busy—formal dinners, formal balls, concerts and performances, lectures, kids program, strolling the deck, a little “ship school,” swimming, taking in a spot of tea in the afternoon, careful research in the champagne bar, and, of course, finding just the right deck chair for a morning and/or afternoon nap. Doesn’t leave a lot of time for updating the blog!! Plus, don’t forget that we’ve been losing an hour a day (a fact that is painfully obvious when traveling with children)—lots of things keeping us away from the computer.
We’ll try to get caught up when we reach London, which we expect to be tomorrow. The ship is scheduled to arrive in Southampton at 7:00 in the morning. Getting our things together, finding our bags, meeting our ride, etc., etc.—we anticipate getting to London around lunch-time.
But, below you will find a couple of photos from our stay on the QM2—a voyage that we highly recommend! Enjoy!
Best to all,
Here are John and Margaret with some of their friends from the Cunard Kids' program, all dressed up for the formal dinner and ready to attend the after-dinner show at the Royal Court Theatre.
Here are Dad, Margaret, and John, arriving on our last night for dinner at Britannia.
Here are Mom, John, and Margaret (wearing her dad's suit jacket on account of the cool breeze) standing on Deck 7, with the kids' pool below and behind them, and the sunset in the distance.
And some final thoughts from John:
I can’t wait to get to England because I remember it being a fun place. The first thing I want to do is go to the London Eye, then go to Big Ben, then go to the Tower of London.
