Gone fishin'


Had another walk along the never ending beaches to the north of Denia, as exhilarating as ever, there was even a small surf up. We returned just in time to catch the fishing fleet arriving home so called in for a look. There was quite a buzz on the quay as the 20 or so boats arrived in quick succession, and we joined the milling crowd of people out get their tea and interested tourists. There were a few bigger fish amongst the catch, but they were few and far between, the vast majority would best be described as tiddlers - quite a sad sight really. Maybe the Mediterranean and the North Sea have already gone the same way, though I suppose that as long as a living can be scraped, they will keep going out.
