This yellow buoy was outside the lifeboat station last week …always a good subject for a photo I think.
I don’t know exactly why it was outside the lifeboat station, but presumably it broke away from its moorings nearby and it was towed ashore? Made from a metal base and a plastic turret (?). How is the light powered – is there a battery inside (assuming that is a light taped-up on the top). It doesn’t appear to have a solar panel for power?
I haven’t seen too many of these on the beach …in fact the last time I took a photo of one was way back in 2007.
Please do comment if you know more about buoys and this one in particular.
