whew........New ferries at last.....

A sigh of relief at last,crossing to south coast will hopefully be much faster and safer as the ferries arrived after the longest wait....

Hooray!!!!! So pleased for everyone!! Locals especially! About time too!! The one time we crossed we waited half and hour. So lucky!......but that was 10 years ago!!! Can't imagine how awful it must be for those who have to wait 7 hours in the sun and heat and bedlam!

please don't get overexcited--problem is still the KWS Ferry management! There needs to be be an overhaul too-if they are not able to sort out even the queueing then there is something wrong here.

I'm glad that the 2 new ferries have finally arrived but please don't expect miracles.
