Push/Pull

With the cold Spring, the local fishermen have had to wait longer to go to sea this year. Now the fish are coming back, the boats are going out. Looking out from the kitchen window, it’s reassuring to see them mooring up again. The push and pull of the marine parking lot.

Facing east to the sunrise over the River Colne from Wivenhoe, Essex.

On my way to an 8am appointment, I just had time to stop and admire the scene. The last beautiful summertime sunrise for 2020.

Sirene

Sirene CS434, a fishing vessel moored on the River Colne at Wivenhoe, Essex.

Sadly, Wivenhoe no longer has a port or a shipyard. Happily, it still has a sailing club. From time to time, as well as the leisure craft, smaller working vessels, such as Sirene, can also be seen. A glimpse of the past.
