Yesterday the lovely Queen Elizabeth called into Bergen, Norway. I took the following photos as she sailed under the Askøy bridge during her departure from the city.

There's a full set on my hobby blog, for anyone who may be interested :

It's always fun seeing big ships sailing under the bridge; the top decks seem almost close enough to step down onto!

This made me laugh! I'm lucky with the view from my garden, at least on the 2 days each year when it stops raining enough to go outside

That's a great blog! Thanks for sharing.

Were you up on the top decks during the sailaway? I have a bunch of extra photos taken from the bridge that I didn't add to the blog...you might be able to spot yourself onboard

I was up on deck, the bridge felt incredibly close as we passed underneath! I can't remember if I was wearing my bright pink coat at that time...

Do you remember roughly where you were standing? I can dig through the extra photos when I'm home this evening and see if I can spot you!

I was on the main Lido deck at the back, between the canopy and the stall selling champagne next to the pool

I've taken a look and unfortunately my shots of the Lido deck are very limited, so there are no candidates for spotting you in the area you describe. Hope you had a great trip though

Thank you Host Hattie. I was behind in updating the blog (mainly because we were too busy enjoying ourselves!) but I caught up on the journey home on Friday. It was a fabulous holiday and we now have a fresh collection of wonderful memories.

Agreed; your photos are wonderful AllieBallie! Just took another look at your blog and practically feel like I've been on a cruise myself
