Mr Monkey in Fleetwood, 20th February

"You can't really tell whether they're waving hello or goodbye, you know"

Mr Monkey looking at the Fleetwood Fisherman's memorial Mr Monkey looking at the Welcome Home sculpture

Mr Monkey paused to look at the Fisherman's Memorial. Erected in memory of Fleetwood fishermen lost at sea, the memorial is made up of bits of trawler. A little further on, Mr Monkey saw the Welcome Home sculpture by Anita Lafford. This shows a fisherman's family waving to him at the end of a voyage - it was bad luck to wave goodbye to a fishing boat.
