BEACH HOUSES FOR OUTDOOR WEDNESDAY
As much as I love my house on the Bay, with my own little beach, I can't help but dream of a house right on the ocean. I imagine going to sleep with the sound of the crashing waves, right outside the door. And, waking up in the morning to endless expanses of beach for a morning walk. On a recent trip to Destin, I took pictures of a few that I think would "fill the bill"!
Aren't these just dreamy? I love all the soft pastel colors that reflect the colors of nature that surround them. Can't you imagine catching the breezes from those balconies, while enjoying the breath-taking views. Notice all the different styles of columns and railing designs. I'm especially partial to the dark wooden hurricane shutters---pretty and functional!
Would you choose one built in the sand dunes and surrounded by palm trees, or would you rather have the ocean lapping right up underneath your porch?
As of now, we are fortunate enough not to have any oil in Mobile Bay, but please continue to keep the Gulf Coast in your prayers. I'm sure y'all are as heartbroken as I am to see the oil covered wildlife.
