Land Ho!

28 Aug 2012: It’s dark, it’s 5am and it’s raining, but it’s thrilling. Up ahead is Manhattan’s wall of skyscrapers. The Statue Of Liberty off to the right, her torch aglow. The decks are packed. The captain’s booming voice drones information about how the Statue was made and shipped to this spot but it’s hard to hear what he’s saying. It sounds like whale song. I’d always thought of the Statue Of Liberty as a bit of a novelty item but viewed from the deck of the QM2 as we approach our new home she suddenly makes a lot more sense.
