QM2 in Lisbon 2009-07-15: the departure

With the QE2 in her exile in Dubai (should I say retirement?), the Cunard presence in Lisbon lives on with their two new QUEENS and the QUEEN MARY 2 has just paid another call in the Tagus on 15 July 2009: another opportunity to see the more beautiful passenger ship of the 21st century and a proud successor to the previous three QUEENS...
I did photograph the QM2 early in the morning on her arrival and at about 7.00PM when she left the Tagus bar again cruising into the Eastern Atlantic.More QM2 photos arriving Lisbon at the same day here.
