    Hello and Thanks for your kind comment, Pakman :)
    Following pictures were taken a day before her arrival and there was nothing but sky.
    You would understand how large she was. 32.JPG 33.JPG 34.JPG 35.JPG 36.JPG

    Thanks for kind comments too, David, Hugh, Terry and Jan for likes ! :thumbright:

    I hesitated to clarify her name because I don't think her design and size is not necessarily correct. She is a motorized excursion boat. :)

    Thanks Jim and Torch for your kind posts too !
    I don't know if we may call her QE 3 officially but was surprised to know QE 2 is still active.
    It was a good honorable event for us Osaka people to receive her and we wish her safe voyage looking forward to seeing her again in the future.
