This scene is Bude harbour. The large rock in the background is Chapel rock and in medieval times it had a small chapel on top of it. To the seaward side is Barrel rock which to this day has a large green barrel sitting atop a stout pole which is used as a navigational mark to show the entrance of the deep channel into the harbour, the other poles mark its curving path. To the left of Chapel Rock is the breakwater which was built in 1839 to protect the harbour from Atlantic storms.

As a family we loved playing among the rock pools and flying our kites on this beach and now my grandchildren love it just the same. In the painting I have included my dog, Bramble, and me walking along the beach.
