Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 4 October 2014

Sunny Saturday in Newlyn




Like a giant Jenga game the promenade sea wall is being...


put back together...


Saturday it might be but some of the boats are landing...


not all to Newlyn market, which is one f the reasons the port has now slipped to third place in the English ports' league...


most inshore boats land their small crab catches direct to a local merchant


a box at a time...


ably assisted by the next generation of fisherman...


another paint-up underway...


the new ring netter Mayflower is yet to make her maiden voyage...


one of the port's ex-French fishing boats, the Imogen III...


there's a pecking order at sea...


generally it is the bigger who takes precedence and any scraps going...


time to stow the gear on the St Georges...


while aboard the punt the flask comes out for a cuppa to kickstart the day at sea...


any day now...


the Nelwyn Co-op will open again.
