Queen of Scandinavia
Queen of Scandinavia seen here on her final goodbye to the Port of Tyne (North East England) as the Tyne's 144 year link with Norway by sea ends. Sailing to Stavanger where she was to be laid up with her crew being discharged from the ship - a sad end indeed.
Photographed from Western Quay, North Shields - 30th August 2008.
