Fishing Days are Over…
I always feel rather sad to see the rotting hulks of old Fishing Vessels, left to the weather and looters to strip it to its skeleton.
Many years of venturing on the turbulent seas, bringing home a catch to earn a valuable income for its owner. I am old enough to remember the days when the Scottish Fishing Harbours were crammed, wall to wall with such craft. Now all but gone.
It was a dangerous and extremely hard way to earn a living…. it needed a tough boat and a tough crew.
They too had to….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
