Crane Daze

Today they are putting the boats from the dry dock back into the water at Portreath Harbour. The crane was booked for 3.30pm so we arrived early just in case, and lucky for us they were just about to start. The water was just starting to come in and the wind was bitter but that didn't stop the workers.....
The crane finished at the closed end of the harbour and moved to the mouth and started to drop some of the boats directly into the water....

Everything went like clockwork and soon they were whizzing up and down the cut testing their outboards.

At this point the winds picked up and it got really, really cold. It was decided to abandon putting any further boats in as it would be dangerous with the boats hanging mid air on such a blustery day.

Hey There - thanks for checking out my blog. Yours looks very interesting (I love the home reno stuff) and meeting another westie owner is always a pleasure! They may be demanding dogs but I wouldn't choose any other breed!
