Saturday - a very busy day

Lovely fine morning as I arrived up at Oamaru 
The wooden frame of the old barn is down
Jim walked the dogs up to Trebarvah 
They followed the tracks of the dumper truck down the field
Still some nice waves 

and down the hill to home 
Managed to mow the very wet lawn 
and all ready for the next visitors 

Nik Boyle from The Victoria gave me a scoop today - growing in a secret spot in the village are these little Wild Strawberries 
Well spotted Nik 
Off we went for our walk 
Not sure what these are on a shady footpath 

The Kestrel was around again 
Amazing to see it hovering in the strong wind 
Almost high tide 
Suddenly Jim spotted the Kestrel on the ground - lovely expression
Waves still rolling in 
The Belladonna Lillies with the last few Crinum Lillies towering above them 
I then went into Penzance to watch Gry Maritha enter Dry Dock for a repair to a seal  - out again on Monday am
While I was waiting I heard an engine roar and there was PZ36 Ajax heading out of the wet dock and round to Newlyn to get ice and then out to the fishing grounds 
Gry slowly heading towards the gap 

She turned around with the help of the little tug Danmark 

Lots of tying down preparing for the water to leave 

Think they spotted me 
Thought that this was a lovely sight 
Panorama of  the harbour


  1. What a feast for a Sunday morning ! Poor old Gry what a trouper with a fantastic crew.Great photo's of all the maneuvers .Oamaru always looks so welcoming...I wish ! journey would be a bit much now.Had a glorious day 'oop' north !Weather glorious Blakeney busy, sat on Morston Quay in the sunshine...didn't go for lunch at Morston Manor !!!!! thanks Sue.

    1. Ah loved Blakeney - we used to take the caravan to Kelling Heath and drive along the coast. Poor Gry was looking rather uncared for in the dry dock this morning - I'm sure she's missed an annual service when she was being leased from the new owners and I was told they weren't doing the normal servicing either. Lyonesse Lady is due for a service in the next few weeks so not sure if they can fit Mali Rose back into the dry dock to repair her. One of the Dry Dock crew was joking they were going to stick gaffer tape on her. Will have to try to find out what is happening. First job for me is to try to roll back the latest Windows 10 update as it's wrecked my photoshop Grr! Sue
