And Then The Sun Came Out . . . .

. . . . What a Treat!
The rain thundered down all night. The day dawned grey and bleak. Southwold’s beach and the North Sea were uninviting:

The town was drab:

And then the sun came out and lit the candy-striped beach huts:

It bathed the swans in gold:

And provided a stunning sunset:

Our last night before we put our caravan “to bed” for the winter was perfect.
Post for the photo challenge “treat.”

Still house hunting . . . .

Any of these take your fancy? There wouldn’t be any garden maintenance. I wonder what the neighbours are like? The accommodation might be a bit small. Good view of the North Sea though. Nice beach just a few steps away. It could be our only opportunity for a seaside “villa!”

Yes, I’ve posted similar pictures before. I’m rather smitten with beach huts.

I had thought they were a quintessentially British “quirk” – somewhere to cower and make a cup of tea on your camping stove when the weather is foul – but I’ve discovered them in other countries as well. Have you seen any?

Have you seen these?

Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside!

Yes you can actually sunbathe in England.
The picturesque view is Felixstowe docks.
The bathing beauty kindly gave her permission to be photographed.
