Ending this trilogy with a colorful bang, the boys and I found ourselves along these huts.
I’ve seen these colorful huts or cottages on the vlogs of some Brighton-residing YouTubers and I’ve always wanted to visit since. I didn’t really know where it was aside from the fact that it is fronting the Brighton beach. What I didn’t research is that the Brighton coastline may not be winding, but it is long! From the pier, then the i360, we couldn’t find a hint of these cottages. Not even a single one went astray from the group. So after several meters of hopeless wandering, the boys finally took it to heart to tell me it might not exist where we were. But, I persevered! In hindsight, I probably missed the hint that they were already tired tailing after me, searching for these gaddaemn huts. Haha!
I took the liberty (well, because who else would, it was my mission and they had no choice but to become Harry and Ron to my Hermione) to ask strangers where the cottages are and the café man told me it would be further down the coastline. Which means, more walking!
A hundred calories burned later, there they were.. in all their vivid glory.
BRIGHTON MY DAY!! Brilliant.
The boyfriend learning to hashtag OOTD! hihi
Dilemma with pastels, muted and brights.
Once you go pink, you never go stink?
Technically, these aren’t of Brighton’s only but also of Hove’s, a neighbour town. No wonder we walked so long! They are situated almost crossing Hove, already. They are owned by private citizens, most likely, residents of Brighton & Hove. And used as storage or as an actual cottage to stay in to have that magnificent view all-year round, especially during summer!
As I was doing research, I came across this page of the city council. You can see there are paint codes, because yes, all sides except for the doors are identical! But even the doors have rules, solid or vertical stripes only! So if you’re planning to own one, do plan only according to the city council rules! 😄
The sun setting and the seemingly endless minutes of walking may have made it a bit underwhelming. But fear not, the huts proved to be a good source of awe and laughter aside from photos. A lot of puns and great color palettes were learned that day! It, also, gave us more time together, more time to share an unfortunately rare moment. We used to spend every school day with each other, yet only a couple of times a year nowadays. So not knowing where the cottages were may be a disguised blessing from time to us.
Crazy Einstein hair because all care was lost after finding them huts.
Rather surreal to hang out with each other in a different time and different place! If you told me at 1st grade that we would be where we were, some 19 years later… I probably wouldn’t understand you. I don’t think I have enough geography knowledge back when we were 6, haha! Nevertheless, it was fun to share a day with a dear friend who you can still talk endlessly with despite the amount of time you’ve spent away from each other. Thanks, Jacky for spending the day with us. On to the next one!
