With New York Harbor closed to commercial vessels due to security, Cunard sent the new QM2 to celebrate her first Fourth of July in Newport, RI. The cruise line doubled Newport's fireworks budget to ensure their passengers a decent show. Newport experienced total gridlock until well after midnight, as Rhode Islanders flocked to see the beefed-up fireworks and the new Queen. Please enjoy and thanks for looking. Original size view is highly recommended. The fireworks photos live here now.
