Tuesday's harbour


Making her last landing for the year, young Jermey Hosking's Nazarene lays to the fish market...


as the sky begins to lighten...


the harbour gets a warm glow from the south...


there's still plenty of work to do on this beamer...


interestingly, Newlyn's latest boat to the join the fleet is still sporting her French name and number...


and she is by far the biggest purpose built netter in the local fleet...


sporting a huge stern...


there's still a few jobs to be finished on the big three beamers from Stevenson's fleet before the boys can finally hang their oilies up for the last time this year...


while aboard the Corin's new boat the paint is being applied during breaks between showers...


one of the green team's admirals, Charlie Downing takes a break...


before a helping hand is offered...


the Cornish Sardine cat, Lyonesse makes her way in...


looks like a new name and numbers for the new blue beamer...


the harbour's tree is looking spruce...


as is the one outside the Mission....


the recent heavy seas have scoured the beach off Newlyn Green to reveal the subsoil in places, its not so long ago that the fields on the Lidden ran down to the beach...


Tom is still keeping an eye on things...


pretty as a picture and calm enough with a gale forecast for the night sure to curtail the year's fishing for the fleet.
