Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Start to the season proper as Scillonian sails on a Saturday again


Lying in state, dozens of granite blocks await their fate...


with the work on restoring the seafront between Penzance and Newlyn seemingly at a standstill...


during the storm some of the boulders heaved up the beach were huge...


interrupting the view for those that might stroll twixt Green and Prom...


promise of some summer sun sees sunshades show outside the Tolcarne Inn...


meanwhile the new iceworks begins to take shape, a little less of a ready-to-go kit than as expected...


still in eport, Dutch crewed Morgenster...


still more work to be done reclaiming lost pots...


alongside the Kastel Paol....


the low cloud persists this morning over the harbour...


showing off her twin-rig gear...


another view of the old and the new...


some heavy kit has arrived in the port...


evidence of the extreme pressures exerted on the derricks of a beam trawler when the boat has hitched a wreck on the bottom...


maybe it's May blossom...


somene smash and grabbed a Cornishman!...


local Newlyn protection racket, you can't be too careful these days


a new boat in the local fleet...


along with the stern trawler Millenia...


while the Billy Rowney gets a major refit in Penzance wet dock...


loading time for the Scillonian just before she sails...


latest inshore trawler net drum model from Spencer Carter


looks like Nick Praed has a new en-suite bathroom fitted...


as a few more Scillonia  customers get directions on where to book a ticket...


might be worth a read at the old bookshop in Chapel Street, Penzance


along with this example from the Camberwell School.
