Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 15 July 2015

The wonders of Wednesday


Port side gear up and ready to be mended...



as one of the Dreckly Boys heads away to sea...



not star of the morning but the Evening Star headed out of the gaps...



and chasing down the good ship Benediction...



dreckly followed by Cap'n Harris...



using a set of feathers and looking for one of the most elusive fish this year...



there's so many visiting boats in Newlyn they are moored three abreast at the end of the pontoon...



some new, some showing off classic lines like the Eve of St Mawes...



reflecting the boat building heritage of the Scillys and the graceful but oh-so-functional lines of the pilot boats that she is so closely modeled along...



power has been restored down the pontoons...



to keep the Boy's Buoys Toys connected...



ashore there are even bigger boy's toys waiting to get on with demolishing the old ice works...



on the market there's a few haddock on the ground and prices have picked up from last week's very poor showing...



though these guys are getting so rare they will soon cost as much as bass, though many would argue these are the tastiest fish swimming in the sea...



looking calm enough...



not so classic lines on the new end-of-quay lamp...




as compared to the old Victorian one that used to be powered by fish oil and then carbide...



the Algrie waits patiently with some of her sister ships in the background......



and the tug Mair waits for orders...



as the crew aboard this tidy ship stay slumbering.
