Chinese fishing nets and more …

Our goal today was to meander through town and to see the Chinese fishing nets.

Nothing really opens much before 10a.m. But it was pleasant and not too hot with a light breeze blowing.

This is an ingenious fishing mechanism and technique -it allows one fisherman to operate a 20m wide net alone. The system relies on counter balance – on the end is the net and on the other end it is balanced with big rocks. The fisherman only needs to walk across the structure for the net to sink and be submerged at high tide.

Some of the historic buildings are beautifully maintained, while others are struggling or crumbling.

This nice young man makes and plays all these instruments. His lovely young wife and daughter.

The sister of the bride told us this was a “post wedding shoot” – yes, photographers were there also!
