Now I know what Ellie does when all goes quiet on her blog front. She is a secret Siren. She perches on a rock or three, guiding ships, in this case a particularly classy one, onto the sandbanks where, they run aground. You couldn’t get a much better catch than the QE2 on one of its finale runs, that is, now that The Royal Yacht Britannia is permanently berthed in Edinburgh.
The QE2 got to Southampton relatively unscathed, just about maintaining her dignity. It is as well that the liner is not going within reach of the seductive siren again for a good while, there’s no knowing what could happen.
