Chippy-Beachy Charm in a Beach Community

Recently we visited a beautiful beach community just 
a short ferry ride from my home.

A haven for artists and lovers of everything wooden, rusty and chippy.

Lining the narrow streets are cute little beach cottages...

 in lovely beachy colors...

Each cottage has a beautiful front gate, some have wooden pickets.

Others are very geometric...

And some are just... well, different...

Many artists live in this community.

Their art (and rusty junk) is everywhere.

Now this is a junky garden!

Shell peace sign...

Painted fish...

They don't allow real cars here. 

When you get off the ferry you ride a bike or pull a little 
red wagon down the narrow street to the ocean.

Everywhere you look the old, weathered, chippy paint is beautiful.

I guess I'm not the only one who thinks so...

We spent a beautiful day in an artsy-beachy 
community that was a great new place to discover
rusty-chippy beauty!
