Skate and ships and sardines



Time for the health and safety barricade to come down that surrounds the new Wherry Town skate park...


as a couple of early risers from the working party...



give the ramps the once over


and disturb the gulls feeding off the stream...


just the one boat left this morning...


with her bow down in the water, the latest big boat to join the fleet, the Joy of Ladram waits for the transport to arrive and take her fish to France...


crab and Cornish sardines go ashore off the fish market...


a familiar face on the sardine scene is on the move...


the blue jellys have arrived along with the sardines...


keeping an eye on the next brail...


skipper Peter hauls another tub of sardines in the queue...


then gets ready with the next brail...


and slips the fish into another tub...



before doing up the clip...


and sending it back to the boat to be filled from the tank..


the Harvest Reaper had an excellent shot of turbot...


and monk tails.
