The Seaside Town that they Forgot to Close Down.
The title comes from the Morrissey track "everyday is like Sunday" . But when i hear that song it always reminds me of Portobello. i'm not saying for a minute Portobello is a dump, but it definitely feels like it's stuck in a time warp i remeber it 20 years ago when i first arrived and a lot of it hasnt really changed , particularly the tacky amusement arcade , you could imagine in time of the "Great British Holiday" that this place would be packed. It's got character and i do like it in a funny sort of way.
So it was Portobello today for another spot of flounder fishing. Admitedly Flounder fishing was not going to be my first choice, but the rain over the last few days has been relentless,scuppering plans for any hopes of a grayling. Still , i'm glad i did have a option. I arrived just before lowtide and was setup and fishing before it turned.
