Wednesday sees another sunny day in paradise




The sun shines on......top quality inshore fish...


time to sample the plaice catch this morning...


buyer's boots...


good shot of hake form the Silver dawn...


there's a few gorgeous ray cutlets just waiting to be cut form this fine specimen...


one big net, a box of twine and some needles...


can only mean one thing, it's mending time...


the Ben Loyal, ex-seine netter, ex-longliner, ex-gill netter is now registered in Greenock but will be working from Grimsby...


on the whelks, she has just had a chute fitted for shooting the whelk pots away...


over on the big beam trawler St Georges it's time to go through the gear...


under the watchful eyes of young Mr Worth...


there are hundreds of links and shackles to check on port side's huge chain mat...


there's a couple of Tupperware tubs in the harbour along with the yachts...


home in Through the Gaps, the netter Ocean Pride makes her way to the market...


the port's ravens have a whole new set of perches to rest on....


whereas the public have somewhat limited access to the beach off Newlyn Green...


until the groundworks are completed...


a solitary punt works a few nets close inshore off the promenade.
