Rye and the Fishermen

Hi folks,

On Wednesday after dropping Daisy off we headed for the Market town of Rye in East Sussex to uncover the fishing side of the area.

We arrived and parked up at the lower part of the town and walked onto the unloading area called Simmons Quay.

We were greeted by boats of all shapes and sizes waiting for the tide to turn and go fishing.

Across the harbour these three were waiting in anticipation for the fish to arrive.

Scattered about were these lobster pots waiting to be loaded onto the boats.

These very colourful nets where laying about on the dock intertwined with rusty jibs.

More nets scattered about.

Come on men, I want my dinner.

On the bank the three are still waiting down by the water but the tide was out.

Along further was this display of nets, I wondered if it was to keep the Gulls out or just decoration.

This chap defied the plastic spikes in the post for a view down the river.

Looking into a lobster pot, these looked new. I wondered if it was a new design.

Finally on the wall was this tile pattern depicting the Fishing at sea.

Thanks for dropping by, more to follow.

nite nite, luv Mike XX

  3. I love the Gull with an attitude problem not "I want my dinner" but "Clear off you OTL"

    Nice post of Rye Mike.

    Good luck to Ian this morning.

  4. Colourful blogg. The boats looked great in the sunshine.plenty of gulls around.

  5. It was a lovely place to visit, we had never been anywhere but Rye town itself, I like the tiles on the house wall, second look I realised they were fish at the bottom ready to be "caught" by the boats, clever.
