Cottages at the Beach

I'm unpacking and catching up on laundry since returning from
 our annual vacation with my husband's family.
We always have a great time and I love that we have this tradition.
It's such a cute little beach town and I always enjoy taking long
walks and looking at the charming houses.
Want to come along?


The house above has its red, white and blue going on 
all ready to celebrate.
Adirondack chairs always look great and I think they look
very inviting on the front porch.


I like how neat and tidy this pretty blue house looks.
The landscaping isn't anything extravagant but it looks great.
In the picture below you can see the pretty, soft light green on the
screened door and the same color is on the door to the house as well.


Here's another screened door that is just so charming.
The little spindles in the center are painted the two 
colors of the house - such a great idea.


The red door on this house really stands out.
A lot of the houses have screened in porches on the front.
I love that you could sit there and watch all the beach goers passing by.


You could do a lot of living on this huge porch.
There's enough room for a couple seating areas and
a nice dining area too.
I'm only a little envious!  : )



A lot of the older homes are being remodeled or rebuilt
 into larger homes that can be rented out to large groups
 or families for the summer. 
But you can still find many older, smaller homes that have
 that small town charm that I love.



And who can resist a house with a white picket fence?



As I'm taking my walks, I like to look back between the houses
and many times I find little pockets of charm like
this sidewalk that takes you back to a cute fence
and a wonderful porch.


Here's an old garage with a huge hydrangea.


This winding staircase must go to a guest space or small
apartment appropriately called "The Beach Denn."


Here's a shady little spot to take a break.
That ivy is growing like crazy and look at that 
beautiful, huge tree trunk!


So many beautiful flowers.
Hydrangea are everywhere - they are huge!
 They must really love the climate.


This house was one of my favorites this year.
It just looked like a well loved family home
and the colors really appealed to me.
I especially liked the little sitting area on the lawn.


I hoped you enjoyed our walk.
Do you have a favorite?
You can go HERE if you would like to see
the beach houses from last year.

Thanks a bunch for visiting!
JoAnne

  3. What a sweet little town--everyone takes pride in their home. I love them all! Painting the front door a bright color is such a cool idea. I want to do that later this summer when we paint our shutters and trim.

    So glad you had a good vacation, JoAnne!

    I dream of owning a beach cottage almost every day in the summer. I wish I could win the lottery so I could!
