Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 2 September 2015

Indian Summer on its way?


The Boy form Bideford's working deck is typical of any inshore trawler working over the stern - there's hardly any clear deck space when the trawl is aboard!...


in the market there are only a few landings from inshore boats today - so it's all top quality fish in the auction...


with  a small shot of grey mullet from the Scillys...


and a handful of sardines on the loose...


otherwise the western end of the market was devoid of fish as you would expect over a big spring tide, the noxt one being one of the biggest of the year as the autumnal equinox approaches......


good to see the Crystal Sea II  back in action after her annual refit...


and the star of this week's The Catch, Govenek of Ladram basks in her morning glory...


while the harbour waits for the sun to put in an appearance...


Tom looks on...


with a wreath for the Fish Festival team at the foot of the memorial...


across the water, the Queen's Hotel in Penzance just catches the morning sun.
