Quintessentially English, the beach hut. Crazy but so true what you say, in some places £60,000 for a small box that you cannot even sleep in, just a place to make a good cup of tea. :). I had to smile also at your second remark a place to get changed. Often we see on the beaches in France and here a family arrive and they all struggle with the towel, I remember the procedure as a kid towel around wiggle out of your clothes struggle on with your swimming clothes., have fun at the beach, time to leave repeat the procedure throughout the family, mum dad kids. Europeans seem much more natural with nudity, especially with children, they either come to the beach in beachwear or quickly and discretely change. If you see a family on the beach hiding under towels 99 times out of the 100, they're brits.
This fine composition is a excellent contribution to our theme.

The trend is towards small houses, lately I read a lot about it. Okay I wouldn't pay this amount of money to live door to door with party goers, it does not look like that much of a silent spot but on the other hand the view is probably amazing once the day tourists are gone. I assume you can also sleep there? Or is it only for changing your bathing suit and brew a coffee? I LOVE the CI, it is a wonderful social study.

Talk about "Tiny Homes!" I know they are just changing huts and shade for meals and getting out of the sun, but here in the USA there is a fad with homes of this size. People are deciding to live is homes with 100-500 sq feet. The beachside images I have seen with brightly painted doors are really attractive. I have also seen then in the winter and they are so forlorn.
