Christmas is near upon us, Amity is tied up in port and the crew are all at home enjoying some shore leave. As we predicted, more cuts in some of our main fisheries. You may wonder what I think at this time with that news? Easy - do not think about it until January. This is a time to leave my thoughts at the harbour until January. From there I will digest the the facts and figures and see what it will mean to me.
On Friday evening Peterhead harbour was well lit up as some of the boats were well decorated to celebrate Christmas. It was a very windy night but nonetheless a crowd still gathered to sing some carols and see the lights switched on. The harbour is looking bright and cheery.
There is an oilskin jacket that the BBC donated to to the Trawlermen-BBC golf outing this summer. It was signed by myself and many more and is up for auction on E-Bay http://shop.ebay.co.uk/?_from=R40&_trksid=m38.l1311&_nkw=trawlermen&_sacat=See-All-Categories
Any money raised will be going to a charity that John Buchan jnr (Jondi) has picked as he was the winner of the jacket.
I wish all my blog readers Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year
