TS Queen Mary Heads for the Garvel Dry Dock

TS Queen Mary was today towed to the Garvel Dry Dock where she will receive some much needed TLC.

It's a credit to those who have pursued this dream over many years, and all credit to them for their efforts.

A fair crowd gathered to witness the event and many cameras were clicking away to record the event.

Here are a few of my efforts for those who either couldn't manage, or live too far away.
