On Sunday I said the outer part of Portrush Harbour was empty. That's not true, because the lifeboat is always there.

The RNLI have had a lifeboat in Portrush since 1860.
The boat pictured has only been here for around a year. The last boat - the Katie Hannan - was severely damaged in January 2008 when it was swept onto rocks on the coast of Rathlin Island.

You can find some details here.

Welcome Parisa.
Yes, there is beautiful scenery around here - although my photos haven't shown much of it yet.

Oh I just love that orange-red colour!

Welcome, artic dreamer!
Yes, it's a very striking colour. I suppose it helps keep the lifeboat visible in a storm at sea.
