Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Wednesday, 22 June 2016

Hung out to dry


Cormorants can often be spotted with their wings fully extended as if to dry them in the morning breeze...


just the one beam trawler and handful of inshore trawlers...


 landed to the market this morning...


giving Mr Stevens ample opportunity to extol the virtues of the finest Cornish fish...


like these lemons...


and John Dory form the Innisfallen...


more lemons...


and yet more lemons form the Shiralee and Boy Lee...


name the fish with a big mouth, not a lot rhymes with it though ;-) ...


a sprinkling of mackerel gave themselves up for change last night...


looks like the boats are readying themselves for the forthcoming Cornish sardine season ...


up on the slip for the final stages of her massive refit, with her deep draft the Twilight can only get on and off the slip over the bigger spring tides - there would be insufficient water to allow her to get in position over the slip cradle safely at other states of the tide...


a case of good timing I guess if you are going to break down anywhere...


it is that time of year again - the big wheel and fair by the Jubilee Pool means it must be Golowan Festival this week!...


on a calm and very misty morning... 


when a mysterious island appeared in the Bay...


almost as a mirror image of the Mount...
