Walked along the pier and watch the fishermen come in with their catch, They then cleaned and filleted the fish ready for the restaurants, which confirmed that we only ate fresh fish the whole time we were there.
Kingston Pier is a step back in time, it is the Island's way of launching boats and bringing in cargo in from ships. It is so old fashion, they lift things using a car to haul things onto the pier. It is amazing to watch and well worth a look to see how it all works.
We were lucky, as they were still unloading the supply ship when we visited. That was an education in itself, especially when they had finished and were hauling the boats up onto the pier.

As soon as conditions were right, the Pier swung into action as they began to unload the ship and bring the cargo to the pier, where it was unloaded by crane. Interestingly when the charter fishing boat went out it... 更多
