Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Tuesday, 10 October 2017

Newlyn, at its best in the light of an autumnal Monday evening.


As the sun goes down behind the village, the Scottish trawler Vision III is busy with her stern against the quay taking on new gear...



tour round the Vision III



as the Cornish sardine fleet spread out across Mounts Bay looking for fish...



at high water...



the net boats all took ice today ready to sail late tonight or early tomorrow morning...



the Maverick in the fleet is nearly ready for her first trip line fishing for pollack...



while over on the fish market, the landscape gardeners are about to arrive to dismantle the lush growth on the market's environmentally friendly roof - luckily this is before Cornwall Wildlife Trust get wind of the move and start protesting about the number of unknown or endangered species that have made their home there over the years...



and, just as a precaution, a huge net has been erected to catch any escaping beasts if they decide to make a bid for freedom...



meanwhile, down the quay work continues to get the Vision III back to sea...



good to see Padstow's dredger, Malin visiting the port again...



time to measure the chain lower bridles.
