A very sad time down here these past few days, just one of the three crew members was rescued.



'π•Šπ• π•žπ•“π•£π•– 𝕀𝕙𝕠𝕣𝕖'
Sat here by the breakwater eating fish and chips,
whilst watching trawlers return from their seaward trips.
The rain pours down as it washes away,
the tears of a town on this sombre day.
All year round they leave these shores,
whilst we stay warm and dry at home indoors.
They risk their lives gambling nature’s merciless fate,
so we have a choice of what’s served upon our plate.
Rolling the dice when going to sea,
to bring home supper for you and me.
Courage comes in so many forms,
as they leave safe shores to face mighty storms.
They spend days at sea in a pitching boat.
with so many dangers in working afloat.
And now a town comes together and the candles burn,
with collective hopes fading of their safe return.
A moment of thought and reflection for those left behind,
and a brutal truth to keep in mind,
that so many people risk their lives every day,
to allow us to live ours in our accustomed way.
Brixham now gathers with love and light,
for the two that won’t be coming home tonight.
With flowers and tributes down by the quay,
in memory of those lost on the Joanna C.

Sad indeed. I can’t put it better than Tennyson

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.


Giles. Mogless in Paris.

Always sad. Fishing is a dangerous occupation, more so than being in the forces or the police or the fire brigade. Like farming in that respect.
