A fitting memorial

480A3794
Situated at the end of the rock wall at the entrance of marina is this memorial to those fisherman who have not returned. It is fitting that it lyes on the commercial side of the harbour where men have plied their trade on the unforgiving seas, dealing with mother nature more than most. A couple of things struck me as I read the list. Firstly, All the men who have perished steadily since 1948 were between 48 and 76. And also that there have been more people surrendering to the sea than shark attacks recorded.
