Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 25 February 2018

'Tiz a gray day in Newlyn.


Heavy clouds still fail to block out the sun this morning...


as a stiff easterly breeze blasts across the bay...


from the Mount to Newlyn...


watched over by the memorial to lost fishermen near the Tolcarne Inn...


in the harbour many of the fleet have made it back to land for Monday's market...


while passing Belgian beam trawler Albert Bos takes a day off from fishing and waits for the lorry to land her fish to after spending the last week fishing off the north Cornish coast...


where she was fishing just inside the 12 mile limit - something that might change come the day we exit the EU...



crabber, Delta Dawn III at rest... 


@Cornish_Lobster has just completed a three week refit on his punt Benediction including a fresh coat of sand on the deck - Marazion beach sand at that dried out in front of the woodburner and seized to remove all but the finest grains...


she's been polished and the name and numbers touched up by signwriter Squirrel...


so it won't be long before the lobster pots are put back in the water for the season.
