Old Port, Mangalore


With the arrival of June, fishing is suspended in the district. This helps in two ways- to help the fish breed in peace, and to prevent accidents in the stormy seas during the monsoons. The old port, which now serves as a harbour for the fishing boats that venture into the deep sea, is usually a buzzing place with lots of activity going on. However, in this season, it wears a pretty deserted look, as can be seen in the photos below. The amount and variety of fish available is also limited, as whatever little put up far sale comes from the little boats that don't go very far. We went to the old port today to pick some prawn. It was nice to watch the sky changing from a bright clear blue to dull cloudy grey, over a span of ten minutes.
