Newlyn Fish Festival - Monday 29th August

As it's The Fish Festival tomorrow I thought that this was very apt to leave at the top of my page whilst I'm busy looking at and enjoying all things fishy in Newlyn


 After some rain overnight we awoke to a noisy sea and pretty soon a surfer had arrived
 Some nice clean waves

 Lots of showers again, so Jim nipped out during a dryer spell, while I went out on another shopping expedition - it's a busy time in the Mason household, Jim's birthday tomorrow and Nick's on Wednesday
 Looking like more rain out to the West

 Wooster and Tilly don't seem to mind a short walkies - they know they go further when the weather is better

 Nice long waves
 They just got home before more light rain
 The Canna Lillies are starting to open
 Lots of dark clouds but no more rain this afternoon
 Not Swallows on the wires, but the Goldfinch gang gathering together for the Winter
 Sun kept trying to make an appearance

 Huge number of surfers had arrived as word had got out !

 Busy Busy !
 Looking busy at The Cabin for their Charity night - sadly The Flats & Sharps stopped for a break just as we walked past.  Plenty of people around so hope they did well for Cornwall Hospice Care
 Quite crowded out there

 Saw several near misses - bit like driving around here at the moment

 Back home and they were all still waiting for that perfect wave
Just a pinkish tinge !

Saturday, 27 August 2016


First thing this morning, the beautiful Irene setting off for Scilly and the Regatta weekend
Jim took the dogs down Boat Cove Lane

Tides not being kind to beach-lovers at the moment

H87 HMS Echo came into Mount's Bay she is the first of two  multi-role hydrographic survey ships commissioned by the Royal Navy.
I drove through Marazion to avoid the long queue of homeward bound visitors and decided to play the tourist
Huge amount of smelly seaweed down below the wall

 Sorry - have always loved the Dolphins
Really was looking lovely and Marazion was heaving with mainly foreign tourists, sadly The Castle is not open on Saturday and there were no boats either
Penzance harbour looking lovely

No visitors out on the lawns today
Whoever invented selfies has a lot to answer for ! !

Jubilee Pool looking wonderful
Had a lovely chat with Glen who was waiting for his brother Adrian  who owns Mermaid II the fishing and tripper boat. Glen was lucky enough to be going on the next trip out
 Shearwater II on her way back to Penzance
St Mary's Church looking rather splendid this morning
Penzance may only have a little shopping centre - but just look at the magnificent view it has !
Terramare just backing out of Penzance Harbour with an Island Carriers lorry on board
I took the dogs along the Maize fields above Trenow this afternoon
Looks like a plague of Locusts have descended on this end of the field
Scillonian III in the shadows as she arrives back in Penzance
Lots of cloud looming in the West

Turning in to go alongside Lighthouse Pier

Lovely little Green Veined White butterfly
 Nice view looking over to the barns at Trebarvah
Not much of a sunset here tonight
Nice sky to the East
Looking slightly odd to the South
Just a little brightness at the end of the day
