thought you were "pulling our Plonkers!" when I first saw the Sunset photo
Thought, hang on, the sun sets in the West over the water;not behind the city in the East !!
Then checked out the chart and figured out just where you took the shot from.So in Queensway bay (maybe off the harbour jetty there?) and looking back across SouthEast basin.
So did you launch from the ramp by the Catalina Express offfice or just cruising around?
Can you get close to the queen Mary to get photos?( Looks like a boom or breakwater around her on the chart)
I had one taken next to her 40 years ago when I was a "nipper" so be kind of nice to get another one.
Off to Catalina on the 20th, so if it's choppy will drop the kids on the ferry and meet them over there; so would have to go right past the Queen.
