Port St Mary – Isle of Man – Harbour Photos

“There’s not really anything there,” was my boyfriend Andy’s response when I suggested we drive down to Port St Mary. After finally getting to try the famous Manx Queenies (scallops) that are fished off the coast of the Isle of Man, I thought it’d be cool to visit the place where they’re brought in and processed. I knew there’d be lots of fishing boats to photograph.

Andy was right about there not being much going on. Port St Mary was a very sleepy fishing village with hardly anybody around. It was a gloomy day outside the holiday season. However, the harbour was filled with numerous colourful boats and the dreary weather created a moody atmosphere which I liked. Plus, it was a wee bit chilly providing the perfect opportunity for me to bring out my new bobble hat! 

We only hung around for an hour – just enough time to take a bracing walk around the harbour, breathe in the blustery sea air and take a few snaps.
