MEVAGISSEY HARBOUR

Mevagissey harbour and fishing boats Cornwall
Mevagissey, Cornwall, Inner Harbour 
A grey Sunday morning so poodled down to the fishing village of Mevagissey - where the colourful boats brightened the greyness. Lots of fishing and other boats safely moored within the inner harbour.

All fishing boats have registration codes. The first two letters denote where the boat is registered. FY is Fowey and PW is Padstow.

On the breakwater, which protects the inner harbour, people were fishing by the lighthouse - built in 1896.

The thing about harbours is that there is always something of interest - whatever the weather

    1. Thank you Pam - a few things I'm not happy with on the blog design but hopefully I can find a way to make a few alterations.

    1. Thank you Ann. The small inner harbour was packed with boats, some sheltering from possible bad weather which didn't materialise.

      My wife bought some fresh off the boat mackerel - some she will freeze for future use.

      Thanks again for your encouragement with the blog, appreciated very much.
