Bude Barrel gets a lick of paint

The barrel at the end of the magnificent breakwater is getting a spring lick of paint. I often walk into town via the beach, and was surprised to see scaffolding rising out the sea. I could see that it was wrapped around the barrel. This barrel marks the treacherouse rocks at the end of the breakwater in Bude, which are for most of the day submersed under the sea and its waves. The last time it was painted I think the marines were called in to do the job with a few ladders. Obviously health and safety has dictated that scaffolding now needs to be erected. This does look very strange rising out of the sea!!
