Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 22 August 2014

It might be #FishyFriday but it's also Newlyn Fish Festival on Bank Holiday Monday!



Freshly tarmaced and...


open for business...



you can now walk the brand new coastal footpath to Newlyn from Penzance...



with its shiny new railings...



catch the rising sun...




though they are not the only shiny new things in the port...



end-to-end with #fishyFriday fish...



including scallops for the big beamer Sapphire II...



great gurnards...



hake so fresh it can bite yer bum...



pristine line caught pollack...



magnifique monk...



and even some little delicate monk cheeks...



allset to keep the buyers nodding furiously...



as the brilliant brill get the Cefas treatment...



Lionel Washer washes...



still oodles of mackerel in the Bay...



aa the day boats like the trawler Valhalla go under the ice machine...



big netters get big gear and life made easier with this hydraulic over-ending machine to transport the miles of nest off and on to the deck of the boat...



the ice snake gets a new home...



three of the Rowse crabber fleet at rest...


as the Emma lands her day's work...




looks like a yacht for sale at a good price...



sunrise over the harbour...



four out of these five boats are new to the port in the last couple of years...


as are three of these, representing the huge investment and faith in the fishing future of the port demonstrated by the fishing families of Newlyn...



the visiting yachts are definitely bigger than average this year...



all able to enjoy yet another stunning sunrise...



it would seem a little unnecessary on a boat all  of 45 feet long to have a sign indicating the muster point in the event of an emergency - such are the rules these days...



all designed to see that Tom is able to do his job keeping a watchful eye on the fleet when they are at sea...


it's kind of Newlyn '50%' Green at the moment #whenthegrassgrows...




sunrise over the Mount...


don't forget it's Newlyn's 25th Fish #Festival on Monday!
