Pattern, hard theme this week since I’m not a pattern person. I much prefer natural textures which may or may not create the perception of patterns, so not to skip the challenge I chose strips as my theme.
Aveiro, Portugal has the village built on the beach with lovely, little, colorfully stripped painted weekend houses. To me they look like doll houses all neatly lined up in a row.
The northern beaches are very windy and generally ice cold, even in Summer, if you want to survive, I recommend renting a wind and sun protected hut like these at Figueira da Foz. These too, are deliciously decorated with colorful strips and from far look like a trip to the past when changing rooms at the beach were a must.
