It didn't know there were so many of these huts on beaches in UK, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Lots of our coastal resorts have these huts, these are on stilts because of the high tide levels from time to time.
Quite the difference! I'd probably prefer the cold, windy morning - less people! smile
Brian Walbey: The lower picture can't show it but it was blowing 'heaven's hard' as we say over here and wasn't really all that inviting.

Ces petites baraques sur pilotis sont très belles. C'est la première fois que j'en vois de telles.
Brian Walbey: Lots of our seaside resorts have beach huts Martine, but these are on stilts because of high tides in this area.
I quite like these huts Brian!
Brian Walbey: A peculiarity of English seaside resorts Richard.

I think they call it "bracing" Brian..
Brian Walbey: It was very 'bracing' that morning Chris, we didn't hang about too long.
Darling beach huts, Brian, which you're known for, of course. But they're another thing we're not used to in America (like tides going out and leaving the boats standing "bare").
Brian Walbey: In time to come I will feature closer up pictures of some of these beach huts, they can be quite spectacular if they are looked after.
What a difference a day makes
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill, it was really windy, we didn't hang about too long.
If you dress for the weather you get the beach to yourself on the cold windy day.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Mary although the bottom shot was on a Friday when people are at work and children are at school, the best time to go to the beach.

Typical of the English weather, Brian. It looks like a lovely place with those colourful beach huts.
Brian Walbey: It is a fine beach and if one is onto walking then there are some very good ones of those along and behind the beach in the woodland.
i like the cleaner looking picture below, Brian. and the pastel colours on the huts are rather easy on the eye.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.

Also a difference in tide. Great diptych.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis.

I love these colourful beach huts, fine shelters at stormy, rough days. The beach has fine sands. I have been in Cromer and collected some beautiful pebbles.
Brian Walbey: We have had many holidays in and around Cromer when our children were young, and since, it is our favourite place along that coast.

This looks typically English, Brian
Brian Walbey: Oh it most certainly is Lisl.

British weather at its best!
Brian Walbey: Yes both extremes a few days apart Anne.

Both images have their charm despite the different weathers. My preference is for the weekday morning; no crowds!
Brian Walbey: The bottom shot was on a Friday when people are at work and children are at school, the best time to go to the beach.
