The QE2 leaves Stavanger for the last time...











On August 9th, the Queen Elizabeth II left the port of Stavanger for the last time. It will be retired after this cruise and become a floating hotel. There was a lot of other old steam-powered water vessels. It was pretty neat. A lot of Stavangerites (totally make that term up but it sounds right) were on hand to wave off the ship as it was escorted out of the port with several ships by its side.
There was also a fire truck parade and some old cars on display.
