Heavy showers and sunshine in Newlyn on Saturday.

It's that time of year when the Newlyn Harbour Lights volunteers get busy...


between heavy showers and huge clouds the harbour gets a blast of solar power...


visiting Irish vessel Velvet Chord II S750...


a brace of Rowse crabbers...


sparks fly on the deck of the Sapphire II...


while the crew on the Admiral Blake go through their beam trawls...


 the Crystal Sea has taken her usual weekend break...


while it is time for the boys from the Joy of Ladram to let go the ends so that they can take ice, though I doubt they will sail until tomorrow morning looking at the forecast for the rest of the day...


a brace+1 of Rowse crabbers...





gear  overhauling under heavy showers...


as skipper Paul helps out...


replacing worn shackles and links on the chain mat of the sapphire II...


as Roger Nowell heads up the harbour to take ice...


nice pic of the Sapphire II on the company truck...


just a few more links to go...


twixt heaven and hell...


as the local gull population...


wheel around the harbour...


 looking for breakfast...


with most of the fleet at sea there's not much doing for them!
