Farne Islands ferry "Glad Tidings".

Farne Islands ferry "Glad Tidings". 

One of the Ferry fleet, "Glad Tidings", which runs between the coastal town of Seahouses and the nearby Farne Islands. The islands are home to many species of birds and thousands of Grey Seals (and they are the former home of at least 3 Saints).
The Islands are also famous for their association with Grace Darling (see 1st link below) who, with her lighthouse-keeper father William, saved the lives of 9 people in 1830 when the ship "Forfarshire" went aground and split apart on nearby rocks during a violent storm. Despite weather which was too severe for the Seahouses lifeboat to be launched, Grace and her father rowed to the wreck in a small boat and managed to save the survivors.
