A Royal Rendezvous in Long Beach

A Royal Rendezvous Between Two Queens

A Royal Rendezvous took place Tuesday March 12th in Long Beach when the newest Cunard ship the Queen Elizabeth II came into Long Beach harbor to visit our own Queen Mary. There was such a sense of excitement and anticipation of the event in the days leading up to the event. It was talked about in the local newspaper the Long Beach Press Telegram and on The Queen Mary's facebook page.

As this blog's title says Loving Long Beach, I would be remiss if I did not express my delight when this event approached and unfolded in the community which I have served and promote without shame throughout my career as a full-time real estate agent and Realtor.

As the afternoon unfolded, the Promenade deck began to fill up with those that came aboard the Queen Mary ... the press was there, interviews were done and all waited to see the first signs of the royal visitor with her escort a flagship Goodyear blimp. At sunset and as scheduled ... the event unfolded for all in attendance; after the royal salute, fireworks concluded the rendezvous and visit.
