Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Sunday, 23 May 2021

Summer seems to be still at bay.



Gale force winds have pushed all but the hardiest boats back to port this weekend...


giving no respite in the weather for the smaller trawlers in the fleet including those visitors from Brixham...


be interesting to know the providence of this huge anchor now located by the Fishermens Rest in the Old Harbour...


which is currently the subject of superficial restoration work...


some aspects remain almost unchanged for centuries...


though these days there is just the one lugger drawn up on the beach...


the St Ives lugger Baranbas now has her masts serviced and in situ...

both Penlee lifeboats were out on exercise this morning.



in near gale conditions. Seems Spring hasn't really happened as yet.
