Liverpool (my home city) has been throbbing with activity this weekend as the major British shipping company Cunard has been celebrating it's 175th anniversary.
The three imposing buildings that line the Liverpool waterfront, (from the left) The Royal Liver Buildings, The Cunard Buildings and The Port of Liverpool Buildings. These magnificent buildings are known as The Three Graces..
On Monday she set sail to greet her sister ships, The Queen Elizabeth 2 and The Queen Victoria, in the bay of The River Mersey
The Three Queens arriving at The Pier Head.When they had lined up opposite The Cunard Buildings, they performed a very clever manoeuvre, turning to face the buildings. The icing on the cake was a fly past by The Red Arrows Aerobatic Display Team..
It is estimated that one million people visited this magnificent spectacle, over the weekend. We had a band from The Royal Marines playing, The Welsh Choral Society performing, along with folk groups singing sea shanties and the street performers strutting their stuff too! There were several Pop Up food stalls selling some delicious food, from all over the world.
It's amazing the amount of talented people that live in this vibrant city.
My thanks to the truly amazing Denise for devising ABCW and Roger for his tenacity in his administration of ABCW.
best wishes to all,
