Around Wells-next-the-Sea 3/5

As I said yesterday the back of the beach at Wells has a long line of beach huts all the way along it. This is just three of them, and like all the others they are built above the level of the sand, some even more so than these. I suspect in part that is to try and keep them clear of high and rough tides during the winter.

Now that is what I call beach frontage, Brian!
Brian Walbey: There are dozens of these along the beach, I took a lot of shots and thought this one of the better ones.

Je trouve jolies ces petites cabanes de plage.

Very nice, Brian, I bet they cost.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure they do Frank, no doubt the local council charges handsomely some sort of rental.
I love these little huts! Nice photo!

Yes - they would be very vulnerable on that coast, Brian
Brian Walbey: That bank behind them is quite high but I can't believe they don't get waterlogged at times of very high tides.
and are there no windows, Brian? or perhaps only at the rear? but you have a pretty picture.
Brian Walbey: No windows at all Ayush, usually people who own them sit with the front doors open and on the little verandas.
I'm sure there's method to the madness after all these years, Brian. I do love your English beach huts (something I did not grow up with in America).

I can't imagine rough tides at Wells but I suppose they happen in winter
Brian Walbey: No doubt there are rough tides, think 1953 and the flooding. I'm showing a picture in the new year with the 2010 tide line marked on a building, it wasn't just a few inches!

Little boxes ... but their gay colours always make for great pictures.

These look very ship-shape Brian.

The middle one is particularly smart Brian
Brian Walbey: There are great variations in size, shape, colour and design.

What does mean "Sun Sex & Sanu"?
Brian Walbey: It reads 'Sun Sea & Sand' Philine, and there's certainly lots of sand and Sun, I wouldn't know about the other item smile

They are wonderful and so nice to see in our neon world. A real throwback to when life was slower and more considered.

These are so cute. We have nothing like these here.

Oh, sorry, I read "Sun Sea & Sand.

They make a lovely picture Brian.
Brian Walbey: There are loads of them along the beach, and some are painted in very garish colours.

I bet that by this summer, the sand will be up t the top step. No. 58 looks very well kept. I thought of you and Maureen this morning; I was in Swanage.
Brian Walbey: Very likely Alan. I am quite envious of you spending time in Swanage today. Maureen's brother who lives in Poole quite regularly through the summer months catches the bus to Swanage and spends the day there, he likes it so much. I have been looking at holiday cottages there for May/June, they are extraordinarily expensive for that time of year!

This is as a postcard... what a wonderful picture. I always like these beach houses. Well done Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, they look really good don't they, no doubt they cost a lot to rent for the season.
Nice crisp shot, Brian - I imagine they go for quite a price these days!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom. I'm presuming they are either privately owned or rented from somebody or other, at a price!
