Plein air weekend walk



Work still in progress aboard the Spirited Lady...


while it's looking like job well done for Richard and crew aboard the Still Waters...


  not so the St Georges where there is still plenty to do to bring her up to MCA specs...


after fishing south of the Scillys the big Belgian beam trawler Flamingo lands another consignment of quality flatfish to be driven back to be sold on the fish market at Zeebrugge...


inshore fishing off the back of the quay in Newlyn overlooked by Castle An Dinas quarry away in the distance...


Sunday afternoon and the first major outing since lockdown, lunch at the Logan's Rock Inn followed by at walk to the rock itself...


accompanied by the SAR helicopter doing a recce of the coastline...


maybe checking on how locals and visitors alike where maintaining social distancing on Porthcurno beach...


and the weather being what it was a perfect day for visiting plein air painters to capture...


the stunning view...


and sparkling crystal-clear waters...


being enjoyed...


with signs of sardine rashes all round the bay...


and a certain boat, Butts heading between the rocks off the point of Logan's Rock...


with Cap'n Cod enjoying a pleasant steam home after a long day fishing for bass over the Runnelstone Reef.
