Queensferry Crossing (xi) and HMS Prince of Wales

We happened to be going under the new Forth Road Bridge on our way to Norway the day they opened it to foot passengers (for the one and the only time.) Our eldest son and his intended entered the draw and won tickets for that. I don’t think they’re in these photos. (Forth Road Bridge in background in first one.)

Queensferry Crossing (ix)

These were taken in late December 2016, so I’m a bit late getting round to posting them. The first three are views from North Queensferry, the later ones are from South Queensferry.
