Queen Elizabeth visits Waterloo Region

Queen Elizabeth is visiting Waterloo Region while I am writing this post.  She flew into Region of Waterloo International Airport on a Porter Air flight.  My niece and I went to the airport about 1 1/2 hours prior to her arrival.  It was hot and sunny, perfect Queen watching weather.   The first picture shows two motorcyle Police escort.
Don't know who is in this car of her escort.  I sure did get a perfect photo though.
This is the car that the Queen is riding in.  Too bad I clicked a couple hundredths of a second too soon.  She was smiling and waving to the gathered crowd and I missed the photo. oh boo.

Her Majesty was a hit here in Halifax. I didnt get to see her this time but my son attended a function while she was here and he said she was beautiful. He got to shake her hand.

How exciting!

Our daughter was a Marshall Scholar and she met the Queen at a reception on the reception line. The Queen even spoke a few words to her...we were thrilled! (still are!)

I'll tell her you send your best wishes.

Pity that you missed such a great photo opportunity - especially as you went to all that trouble.

How wonderful to be so close to Her Majesty! Maybe there will be a royal visit to Hawaii sometime. :-) We have a royal palace in Honolulu...
