Docked fishing boats

                         Local food source


Unlike a lot of fishing ports and harbours, Ramsey's hasn't closed and become a shopping centre or worse a multi storey car park. It's still a working harbour. The style of fishing may have changed over the years, light mesh trawls used instead of dredging the sea bed, and young queenies thrown back into the sea and protected, but "fisherman" is a still one of the towns jobs for some. Plenty of hobby fishermen too, but the vessels pictured are the working boats of the town. Freshly caught produce from the Irish Sea, can make its way to the restaurants, pubs and cafes of Ramsey within the day, and we still have a traditional fishmongers too. A Manx Queenie recipe

Kippers and queenies hun, since a nipper.

It certainly feels like a working harbour. The boats do remind me of some in our Maritime provinces out east.

I like harbours. In Cornwall we enjoyed being in the small seaports with their harbours.
That's what I liked in the. UK.
Thank you for your post on ABC Wednesday.

Love how you captured this lively port scene, the colours, the bridge and houses in the background, the blue sky, too!

The video makes me want to board a plane and head right over! I sure hope to one day enjoy the cook's (and fishermen's) labour. Plus, the music woke me right up! ;-)
