QE2 has her Funnel Painted

QE2 under wet dock in Southampton 19 - 26 April 2008, had her funnel painted on the morning we arrived aboard Oceana. Nothing looked amiss early morning when we berthed, but on looking closely one can see the planks in position. Later on, 08:30, while walking the prom we espied QE2 in the distance wearing what looked like curlers! Once fully in view she was having her funnel painted surrounded by 'astronauts' on wooden plants slowly descending. An hour later once disembarked we drove up to Mayflower Terminal for a closer look and it was nearly all over.
