Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 26 August 2015

After the monsoon.


Hard to believe there was enough H2O left in the sky to form any clouds this morning after the deluge during the night...



these guys must be thick on the grunds to be picked up by a gill net...



when your trip of fish is stacked five high you know you have been in the fish...



so the boys on the Britannia V should be happy with the prices this morning... 



as their trip had a good size run, like these 3-4 kilo hake...



and a few boxes of 6+ keeping an eye on things...



it's a weekend of fun for all over the Bank Holiday, the three days kicking off with the annual Newlyn to Penzance swim in aid of the Macmillan Trust on Friday night - it's still not too late to enter - a punt race in Mousehole Harbour on Saturday at 3pm followed 




by the Blessing of the Fleet on Sunday Evening  at 6.30pm and then on up to the Centre 




for the Last Night of the Cornish proms 




before heading to Newlyn Harbour itself for the Fish Festival on Monday - opens at 10am.
