Looking at pictures of the coloured boxes lined up along the sea front reminds me of the 'painted houses' we saw last year - those that line the older streets of St John's in Newfoundland. Most of the houses in the coastal 'outports' were painted like this but it was fun to see so many in long lines like these.
I'd been told they were known as 'jellybean houses' painted the same bright colour as the owner's fishing boat so they'd recognise them when they got back into port. Never did get that verified tho lol

The dock area is at the bottom of this street - thats the bow (the front) of the cruise ship you can see there.
What I did find intriguing was this 'double storm door' I saw on a house - the front entry door was set at a right angle to the street inside a little porch with another door on the face of the house to protect it.
But look at this space saving, ingenious and inventive idea - the window is set into the corner of this house. You can tell it doesn't take much to impress or amuse me lol
Have you been anywhere recently that impressed you?
