Visit to a Fishing Village for Good Fences

Last year, hubby and I visited a little fishing village where we were hoping to see the fishermen mending their nets, and perhaps the arrival of the fishing boats, when sea birds gather for the pickings.
We saw many seagulls, only one plover, but large gatherings of Cormorants near the water's edge. I was so fascinated by everything we saw that I also took photos of  the nets and traps as well.

Good morning & what a beautiful visit to the Portuguese coast to start my day! I can almost taste the salty air & hear the crash of those beautiful breakers as well as the cries of the gulls! This was a wonderful series of photos, I loved them all but especially the blue nets!
Enjoy your day!

Oh my... Those nets!!
I would hate to have to sort them out, but your photos are fantastic, especially the first one (n° 9) that is very graphic, so is n° 8.
The young gulls and the last portrait are also superb!
Congratulations!
Enjoy your weekend
