      No, they go out every day all year round. Hastings has no harbour so they are always drawn up the beach when they come home with their catch. There are about 30 boats in total.

      Snow to my left and snow to my right but not a single flake in Bexhill-on-Sea where I live!

    Love the bright colours! Looks like England is getting more snow than usual. It’s been abnormally cold everywhere, it seems.

      It had disappeared in 24 hours! But it is still bitterly cold. Keep warm Debbie

    Hi Keith … still cold, but thankfully no snow – though we had about 4″ of very sticky stuff – which had gone overnight. Love the shots – and I was pleased to find the letter registrations for the boats … Newhaven, Plymouth and Rye … at least I now know there’s a list! Cheers Hilary

      I’d have expected them all to be registered RX – Plymouth is miles away!

        Yes … I was interested in their origin … but don’t understand the fisheries business, though my mother who lived and worked in Newlyn, Cornwall would have understood more – sadly I didn’t tap into that knowledge … I’m fairly certain that Newlyn has boats from all over … something to bear in mind – in the future. Cheers Hilary

    Brrrrr. I’d hate to be going out on the water this time of year. But great shots!

    Ninety-five? Lol. Now I want barbeque. I remember once getting late to the party and they had drunk all the good beer and still wanted us to clean up.

    I’m pretty sure I’m putting comments in the wrong place but I feel as if I’m shivering right there with the winter boats. Nice job getting some seagulls in there too.

      Don’t worry, I really appreciate your kind words wherever they are! As for gulls, I seem to spend my life avoiding them!


    • Keith's Ramblings Feb 7, 2019 / 11:05

      I often watch them at Newhaven (NN!) and get deafened by the shrieking gulls!

    Wow, I live next to the ocean but we don’t get cold or snow here.
    What do they catch?
    Beautiful shots.

      Mainly bass, dover sole and codling plus crabs and lobster in season. Snow is quite rare here too. Thanks so much
