Too right - that's Williams Marine and Port Services vessel "Sea Horse" taking the Buoys for a walk up the Haven to Pembroke Port from Milford Haven...... it's time for them to be painted up etc....
They're now all sat on the quay taking a break

It's a hard life being a buoy. Or is that the decorators having the break?
