It is Sábado (Saturday) and there is little activity, the boats are
in. Eventually we find a fisherman checking his gear, again it is
something I’ve never seen before, and yet, every country I ever
visited, I’m always drawn to the fishing harbours, their methods,
netting, boats and people.
He’s sorting out ‘pot’ after black pot on one rope, from the quay to the boat.

I'm puzzled by what I see.
He spots me; I go up to him and (try) asking him in my BEST Spanish, what they are for?
He answers kindly… for catching ‘pulpos’ ( small octopus)... they catch octopuses by taking advantage of the animals' habit of hiding in safe places during the night. In the evening they put grey ceramic pots on the sea bed. The morning of the following day they check them for octopuses that sheltered there.
They are very popular in Tapas and most Spanish dishes, like Paella!
Always nice to go, great to come back too.
THANX for ALL your comments and visits, so appreciated, too many to be returned (sadly, however I DO try!... )
Have a good day, M, (*_*)

Why not view the set as a slide-show?
Also I often upload more than one image at the same time, I see a tendency to only view the last uploaded...
