The White Fairies

Actually no, these aren't white fairies at all...they're the new Isle of Wight Ferries. Wight Sky and Wight Light and at last they sailed today! In January 2008, John visited Croatia to watch the launch of WightLight. She first touched the water over a year ago, to the sounds of bands playing, cheers from proud workers and villagers, after being blessed by the local Priest.
Later leaving Croatia, crossing the Adriatic Sea, staying close to the coasts of Italy, through the Mediterranean, Gibraltar, up past Portugal, through Spanish waters, past the Cape Finisterre with dolphins for company and heading East into the English Channel. So, John was very excited today as TV cameras watched from the Quay side as these proud new Ferries, after sailing over 3,600 miles, finally sailed up the Lymington River... to become the new link between the Mainland and the Isle of Wight...
