1. The Queen Mary Marker
Inscription.  On the last day of October 1967, the RMS Queen Mary, the world's most famous ocean liner, would leave her native United Kingdom for the last time. Thirty-nine days and 14,500 nautical miles later she would arrive off the Southern California coastline in the cool of the morning of December 9th. An estimated 5,000 boats of all shapes and sizes would be waiting to greet her! Millions of admirers watched from the shores as the liner steamed toward her new home in Long Beach.
