Clear water and a high activity level at the Rimini fisher's port

In such ports you occasionally see a few fisher boats but here in Rimini the fishing industry still seems popular. There were tens of vessels docked. The water was clear and you could see the fish swimming next to the dock. The close up pictures of fish nets and ropes are fascinating us and we should try these type of pictures more often.

The area is nice with a lighthouse, Ferris wheel, fountain, statues and a small fish restaurant. On one of the sailing boats a Golden Retriever was greeting us. On a sunny day this is an excellent area to have a walk.

In zulke vissershavens zie je meestal maar enkele boten maar hier in Rimini lijkt de visindustrie nog heel populair. Tientallen boten lagen aangemeerd. Het water is er helder en je kan de vis zo langs de kade zien zwemmen. We namen enkele close-up foto's van netten en touwen, dit fascineert ons en we moeten meer met de camera durven experimenteren. 

Het gebied is mooi met een vuurtoren, reuzenrad, fontein, standbeelden en een klein visrestaurant. Op één van de zeilbootjes groet ons een Golden Retriever. Op een zonnige dag is dit een uitstekende plaats voor een wandeling.

  8. Great darling skipper (bark bark) indeed. I like the looks around here, it would be fun to spend some vacation time there. The red and white boat is very interesting from your capture of it.
