The Winkle Pickers

The Winkle Pickers


These smiling and friendly people were unusual in two ways. I have never seen anyone playing a board game on the shoreline before. Most people come for the scenery and the sea. Not only that but they had been collecting Winkles and Limpets from the rocks. I guess that these would shortly be cooked to add flavour to a soup or casserole.

The picture was taken at Mossyard on the Fleet Bay.
