Snow hits Newlyn again!


True to the forecast yet another...


Beast from the East swept across the South West...


not want the boys on the Asteria, the first of this season's Scottish prawn trawlers to arrive, would have been expecting at this time of year...


fingers crossed...


that the local fleet won't have to endure this sort of weather...


nor the local, rather disgruntled, young gull population...


as the snowflakes blast past the lighthouse...


and the fleet...


giving the normally sub-tropical Nelwlyn a somewhat Nordic feel...


this evening as the latest crabber to join the Rowse fleet nears completion, her new set of pots ready and waiting on the quayside....


and some of the Stevenson fleet ready for their next trips...


nets and pots at the ready...


the Amanda of Ladram will be setting sail tomorrow...


along with the crabber, Harriet Eve...


Ivan Ellen can stay where she is of course on the 50th anniversary of the ecological Torrey Canyon disaster.
