Sunday's Royal rendezvous

Queen Elizabeth 2 in Garden Island

There are photos of the two majestic ships cross part in Sydney Harbour on Sunday.
This was Queen Elizabeth 2's last visit to Sydney and her final trip around the world. Later this year, she will go on her final voyage to Dubai, she will becoming a floating hotel and an exhibition centre.

There are the photos I took on Sunday, Queen Elizabeth 2's last visit to Sydney and passing Queen Victoria on her first visit to Sydney.

I was lucky, I took the photo from the deck of HMAS Sydney picture right). There were only about 5 people on the deck of HMAS Sydney. My Garden Island navy base pass turns out be useful ;-).
