The QE2's last visit to Hobart

Perhaps the last great liner from pre-747 age, the Queen Elizabeth 2 visited Hobart today for the final time before she is pensioned off to end her days as a static museum piece in Dubai.

While QE2 probably doesn't have her own Oxygen Bar or four storey shopping mall, she certainly cuts a much better figure than the floating apartment blocks that are today's Disney-esque "Cruise Ships" (with "Lust For Life" as the theme for their TV ads. Skating on thin ice, Iggy....). Anyway, both Dad and myself took a few shots of the old tub while she was tied up, and just as she was leaving her berth.
