Frozen


Mike Nowell, father of England and Lion's Jack Nowell pulls in boxes from one of the three family boats landing in Newlyn...



while the Nereus puts her catch of frozen langoustine ashore...



North meets South...



whiter than white...



the Spanish built (lengthened later in the UK) Solstice after taking ice...



like old times...



the harbour is filling up with visiting boats...



filling the berths that were once taken up by the ports 30 plus beam trawler fleet...



though many of the visitors dwarf said beamers...



sporting huge net drums atop their shelterdecks back aft...



like the Opportunus IV from Peterhead...



30 fathom footrope...



an almost aerial view of the Solstice...



as she pulls away form the iceworks...



time for the crew to head for home...



as another day draws to a close in Newlyn.
