They call it stormy Saturday


One of four coasters sheltering in the Bay...



the railings on the promenade are being refurbished - the original cast posts have hardly corroded despite over 100 years of inclement weather - the kind of steel they are mode from is known and more amazingly the wooden foundry moulds to cast the sand moulds are still in Penzance thanks to local historian and artist Clive Carter...


low tide at the mouth of the Coombe river behind the Mission building...


the Wayfarer is now missing everything topsides...


and a section of the stern has been cut through...


with another cut around the hull almost complete...


ready to be broken up and removed...


there are a number of visiting boats from padstow like the netter Charisma...


filling the quays...


as is the Berlewen...


while the gales blow across the Bay...


keeping the harbour staff busy checking moorings...


coasters watched over by Tom...


from the safety of the shore.
