OUR TRIP TO ... THE ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA

Hi Everyone !!!

Well we had a holiday weekend this weekend. Today we decide to take a trip to Leith near Edinburgh and visit the Royal Yacht Britannia ... something I have always wanted to do. I was not disappointed.

This first photo is the state dinning room. There are 56 places at this table and it took 3.5 hours to set those places. Each place setting was measured by a ruler making sure everything was precise and perfect. Some of the most powerful and influential people have sat at this dinning table with Her Majesty. Bill Clinton, Margaret Thatcher, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi to name but a few. LOL I cannot remember any other names.


This is one of the small bars on board the yacht for the crew.


This is the Drawing Room where the royal family would retire to after dinner.

This is the front of the yacht before we boarded her. It was fascinating. I will post more photos in the coming days.



Thanks for coming on board !!!!! Oh I am sorry about that !!!!!
Take care
HUGS
