Soon be summer!!!

Just a few piccies of our little jaunt out today to go and do the pots. I was supposed to be diving but that was cancelled due to err......lack of interest! (Actually stuck my toe in and thought it was a bit nippy! )

1.) My other labour of love.....and suited to the task of potting, as I don't want those smelly things on my shiny RHIB!
2.) My little baby all tucked up in her home.
3.) Sea fisheries vessel with piggy back RHIB.
4.) Same as 3 different angle.
5.) B*gger isn't someone supposed to be driving that?

Hmmmmm

Very nice Pettal,

Looks like a great part of the world to be in. Excellent pics.

The fisheries boat looks rather special. Is it a permanent resident of Guernsey??

Yeah it's not bad when the sun is shining!

A very permanent resident we have a lot of trouble with the french regarding fishing grounds and normally arrest two or three french boats a year for straying into Guernsey waters.

They also used to keep a check on the divers and their catch as crayfish are banned from divers and we used to have licensing for scallop diving.

Thankfully now the scallop license has been lifted we don't get boarded every week!

Certainly is!

A little more than spitting distance (pardon the expression) but definately close!
