Fisherman’s beach at Hythe has changed with the building of appartments overlooking the beach. However the fishing boats still go out and catch crab and fish of all sorts and sell to restaurants including Griggs.
This painting is of Stella Maria which was pulled up high on the beach and has now disappeared. Is she still sailing the seas or has she been broken up? Another sign of changes on the Hythe coast.
Even the fisherman’s gear is tidied up but I still enjoy seeing the piles of rope and assorted stuff lying in orderly heaps.
Go and see it before it disappears completely along with the way of life.
