Just above the harbour at Portscatho in Cornwall, there`s what seems to be a very old building.  It`s squat, foursquare and clearly built to last not just the march of time but also the battering from gales sweeping in from Gerrans Bay.  It is the Fisherman`s Shelter, provided for that purpose but now used as a valuable local venue for exhibitions by artists, photographers and craft enthusiasts.

I`ve tried to find the history of the Shelter but it seems to be a closely guarded secret by the good folk of the Roseland.   When I visited there, the Shelter was locked and empty - obviously between engagements - and so I took this photo looking in through the widow, through the interior of the Shelter and out the other side........ Well, it`s different.
