Jesmond is a residential suburb and is split into two electoral wards just north of the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The population is about 12,000. It is adjacent to, and to the east of, the Town Moor, providing pedestrian and cycle paths to Spital Tongues and the city's two Universities.

RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2)


RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) is a Cunard Line ocean liner named after the earlier Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth. She was the flagship of the line from 1969 until succeeded by RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004.

The ship made her first ever visit to the region on 16 September, calling at the Port of Tyne for an overnight stay as part of her 40th anniversary voyage around the UK. I took the chance to go down to the Spanish Battery near Tynemouth Priory to get a few photographs of her entering the River Tyne which she eventually managed at the fourth attempt! See BBC TYNE - QE2 enters Tyne at fourth attempt.
