Friday 21st September 2007 was an auspicious day for Liverpool as the Queen Elisabeth II arrived in the River Mersey and moored at the new Cruise Liner Facility. The CLF was formally opened by the Duke of Kent on the Friday mornng and there was a fireworks display at 10.30pm (too late for me though) before the Queen sailed onto her next destination at 3.00am.
The QEII was sailing around the UK as part of her farewell cruise before she sails to Durbai to be turned into a floating hotel.
She did look magnificent in the afternoon sun with the old and the new of the Liverpool waterfront spread behind her.
