With just a little dusting of snow to make it all look more interesting!
Look close - I guess that people were much shorter in those days. Either that or they bumped their heads a lot.
If I recal right - these cottages only have windows that face away from the sea (maybe I have the wrong street) because it would be too damn wild in a winter storm to have windows exposed to the elements on the other side. (See the photos post tomorrow)
