Where were you the day that American movie star, Johnny Depp, came to Cleveland?

I remember disembarking the train at the end of a busy work day and being met by thousands of locals gathered at the Raby Bay Harbour where Depp was expected to arrive after a day filming on Moreton Bay. The air was thick with anticipation. Were you there too?
