We have had such beautiful weather recently. I took a walk down to the marina on a sunny and wonderfully still morning and took a lot of photos.
I'm warning you now that there are a lot of boats in this post!
Sadly the adverse weather has put an awful lot of tourists off making bookings in the South West. Figures show a fifty percent reduction on last years bookings.
Yes, we have some damage here and there, and the railway line repair is almost finished, but the South West is definitely back on track for the tourist season.
The fishing industry is to receive money to help with lost fishing gear and damage to boats and equipment. More help is on the way allowing quotas to be carried over, which means our fishermen can catch more to make up for lost weeks and months during the storms.
I thought Brixham looked particularly beautiful on the morning of my walk
The storms seem so long ago now and tourists have been spotted arriving
I just love the reflections in the water
Now, I'm attempting to be artistic here....so no laughing please! I have walked along this part of the marina for years and somehow never really noticed all this old ironwork.
This one below is my favourite
The Pilot Boat Celia T was busy this morning and came into the harbour to help out a fishing vessel
The Olive-C from Plymouth moored up at Brixham
The Pilot Boat has now attached itself to the fishing vessel and is taking it out of the harbour
I walked all the way round the harbour and it was so peaceful
It's now been a year since I started this blog and the time has flown by. I have really enjoyed the experience and meeting and getting to know all the lovely people who follow and comment
on my posts. Thank you all so much for following along. I hope the next twelve months will be just the same, with plenty of new things to photograph too.
Have a great weekend in the warmth that is predicted, we've just had a couple of days of very cold north easterly winds and heavy rain showers.
Until next time, take care and happy blogging
