      As a kid I stood on a balcony at the Pacific Coast Club in Long Beach (no longer there) and watched the Queen Mary come into port on a foggy morning in 1967.

      I saw the Queen Mary the night we were in Long Beach. It was night, but I did catch a glimpse. We passed Knot's, too, but didn't have time to stop there.
