By the Sea
Topic: Field Trip

We're off on an adventure! We didn't go far, just one state south of home but what a change it was.

Did you know that the Queen Mary had been changed into a hotel? It is moored at Long Beach, California and the nightly rate is very reasonable.


 

 

The ship has been preserved in its historic elegance so, if you're looking for all the conveniences of modern hotels, you won't find them here. Just look at these views from around the ship:






No, this isn't the wave of the future - in fact it is no longer working. But it is neat to see how the elegant and monied used to sail.


A llittle chart on the 'welvome aboard' brochure allows one to 'read' the flags.


Unlike modern cruise ships, there are no balcony cabins. But, the cabins are easily twice as large and an outside cabin sports two portholes with a view of downtown Long Beach and the marina.


We enjoyed a four day stay while we explored the Los Angeles area.
