Our Royal Jaunt

I am still trying to get my get up and go back.....but I wanted to share a bit of where my hubby and I went.  We drove along with our friends....Candy and hubby.....to Long Beach, CA.  We had reservations to stay two nights at the permanently docked Queen Mary.  And we were treated like royalty!

I will show more pictures, but I haven't had time to organize them.....so I will just show you a bit....


This is a card that I intend to frame.  It is a drawing of the Queen Mary in her voyage days.


Hubby and I on the deck ready to go to dinner at Sir Winston's.  The weather was beautiful!


This is the four of us ready to go eat at the 5 star restaurant.  Trust me, we ate.  When we came down from the dinner, I was laughing so hard at myself.  I told my hubby that my dress fit me $$$$$ ago!!


Some of the view from the ship.


This is looking down the corrider.....all the original wood.  It was stunning!

But this is my favorite pic....

What a fun trip, Ceekay. You look just beautiful!!!! That is a wonderful picture of you and your hubby in the phone booth. It reminds me of those pictures we all took when we were young dating couples and crowded into one of those photo booths.

So glad you are enjoying the sweet moments of life. xo Diana

What a sweet kiss in the phone booth, Ceekay. That sounds like a great mini vacation and almost like you were at sea.

Hi Ceekay! Oh, how marvelous! I've toured that ole Queen Mary years ago but didn't know you could stay in her! Sounds like a fab trip and I'll be waiting to see more. You look so pretty and I like your new hair do! The last snap is wonderful - just like a cover of a 'love' paperback!

Cyn said...

great pics! I seen the Queen Mary when I was a teenager. Can you still see the BIG anchor???

Susan K said...

It was such fun looking at your photos of the Queen Mary! My hubby and I took a six-week Western trip (we live in Pennsylvania) in October 2012 to celebrate his retirement and we stayed onboard the QM for a night...did you take the guided tour? It was so interesting....just thinking about being on the same ship so many famous people sailed on was quite fascinating to us! Suzy (wkohr@comcast.net)
