Shoreham by sea House Boats

Went for a Walk with Steve and Livvy today, along the river to see the Shoreham Houseboats. I was flabbergasted that she had never seen them and dragged her along...the boats are really interesting as they are very ramshackle but look incredibly homely. Some people have been really creative and done some really unusual touches...
My favourite one is here, their boat is made out of half a bus, and a crazy window that looks like something from the yellow submarine. They have a microwave letter box, and there are lots of smaller equally strange vessels that surround it, I love the bath tub window and the washingmachine window too! very inventive, very creative and I would imagine most of these parts have been salvaged too.



Little walkway that leads down to the shed and kayak mooring.







Tennis art!



This one is unusual because it looks like an ex-military boat, its MASSIVE!!!!


This one was very pretty, loved the bunting and the reclaimed fishing nylon weaved fence!

Went to the beach after and we found SAND! There is rarely sand anywhere around this coast which infuriates me, everywhere is covered in large pebbles and rocks, and makes for very uncomfortable beach sitting, but the tide was quite far out today and there was a whole good 10 metres of beautiful sand, Alfie the dog got very excited and started cantering around when he realized he was on soft lovely sand! Made me reminisce and think about Cornwall, must get down there again soon!








Oh, and I will be uploading more new products tomorrow, very exciting!

Goodbye, untill next time!
