Lavena, 86 years
I have made many wedding dresses. I made my daughter Wendy’s wedding dress and one of my granddaughters 5 years ago – and that was the last one I made, it was lovely.
I have been on the QE2 two times. The second time I flew to Tahiti with my son and daughter in law and we boarded there, and we cruised back to Sydney. We stood outside the heads until the tide was the right height to come in to Sydney harbour. We went out on deck at 5 o’clock in the morning as we wanted to see it coming in... And when the tide was right we moved in very, very slowly and it was a glorious site going up Sydney harbour."
