They're obviously not too keen on getting in, even the Red Funnel  ferry is overtaking them...

Nice, if sombre, pictures, Solent Richard.
With the help of Google Maps and some orientation, I'd say you were in or near Lee-on-Solent when you popped these photographs?

Good morning Canuker.

 

Spot on. Right on the waterfront. 

 

I even flew to Cunard House Flag to welcome all my friends onboard home...

I also was around at the time of Queen Victoria’s arrival back into the Solent waters. I was waving to passengers onboard from my vantage point on the ISLE OF WIGHT. 

Good to see her arriving mid morning makes a change and a chance to get some photos.

Well done MaggieMou.

 

Together we had her covered - especially with so many of our good friends  onboard.

Astonishing!

Solent Richard and maggiemou: here are each of the first two pictures in the series you have both published above.
Look carefully and you will see that you are both taking pictures of each other, and at almost exactly the same moment in time.

Maggiemou, you were in or near East Cowes (I think?), with your camera aimed across the Solent (Spithead?) towards Lee-on-Solent. And Solent Richard, you were the exact opposite. And the positioning of the same two vessels in each picture mean that you must have taken these pictures easily within about a minute of each other.
Astonishing!

Take a look:

No I know how it looked from the outside - thank you for posting.

 

Being on board, it was a strange and different return than from any “normal” cruise.

Yet, the sun and the blue sky helped to make it rather comforting.

 

The green nature, the sandy beaches and the bright houses were a welcomed change from the grey of the North Atlantic.

 

From this point on it was all about “last”. Last show, last dinner, lunch, tea, breakfast, drinks, …. – last not only for our cruise but for the unforeseeable future.
