I cover the waterfront...

By philhemsley      
“Whenever I go to the dock and look at the horizon, I am on the other side. If I see a boat on the ocean, it pulls me like a cord . . . like a belt pulling my sides, and I don’t know where I am, I cannot think of anything else. . .”
Marcel Pagnol (French Writer, Producer and Film Director, 1895-1974)

Trawlers moored up at Brixham Fish Docks in Devon. Brixham fish is highly regarded by the top UK chefs.

The panorama was a tiny bit inspired by the song I cover the waterfront – John Lee Hooker
