Well, Friday June 5, what a day for weather! Strong north-west wind all day, huge temperature drop from last week, quite cold this evening and then around 8 30 p.m. it suddenly rained quite hard. I think it was the first time I have heard the rain on the roof since lockdown. And then this appeared in the sky, one of the sharpest, clearest rainbows I have ever seen. In three minutes it was gone but it left a beautiful pink sky.

I have been told this week that very soon we can start taking out passengers again but with social distancing I think my boat will only be able to carry up to four people and face masks are compulsory. Along with having to deep clean the boat between trips, it looks to me as if there may not be any trips this year because, until there is a vaccine life, cannot return to normal. Social distancing will be with us for months.

Who would have thought that during the hottest spring and early summer on record we would be urging holiday makers to stay away and that, by and large, they have. Lyme was pretty busy during the hot spell and the Spring Bank holiday week but the main crowds stayed away. The main sandy beach was pretty packed at times.

So, it’s wait and see time for any resumption of Lyme Regis mackerel fishing trips and Lyme Regis deep sea fishing trips. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait until next year.
