Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Friday, 22 May 2015

It's Newlyn on a fine #FishyFriday foggy morn.


Looking towards Newlyn low cloud obscures the view...


a visiting heron checks out the Coombe river beside the Mission...


on the market the Dory's are beginning to shine...


name that fish...


on the left, the lobster, on thew right, a pair of crayfish - which, unlike the lobster don't change colour when they are cooked...


an Excellent view across the foggy harbour...


time for the trawls to come of the Maracestina...


her Filipino crew get stuck in...


and get the heavy footrope on the quay...


and begin to spread the belly section...

up the quay...


all hands together...


eventually produce the cod-end and stocking...

the sailing season is now underway...


icing up time for the big netter...


passing traffic...


just about to come down off the slip...


with the  Bessie Ellen anchored in Gwavas Lake...


great to see the local pubs taking full advantage of the finest local ingredients on their menu...


making the short trip...


it's launch day for the Ocean Breeze...


the crabber gets her mizzen sail hoisted...


Penlee Park Open Air Theatre's Summer programme has now started.
