  1. I’m staying in the UK (I think) this summer too! I just read about the beach huts in Dorset in TimeOut this morning on my way to work and am now convinced I have to go … that and Cornwall are on my list. I need to be by the seaside!

    1. They are SO CUTE! There are rainbow ones in Bournemouth, basically a village of them at Hengistbury Head, and a few specially designed ones in Swanage. I hope you get to see them 🙂
