Sometimes I wonder how some things became synonymous with beach side living. I "get" the concrete "breeze blocks" and the outdoor space which now would be called a patio or a deck, but which back then was ever so much more descriptively a "breeze-way". What a lovely term. Let's do what we can to bring it back into common use!
What I don't get is the array of clam and bailer shells, well weathered and no doubt souvenired from a reef barely five or eight hundred kilometres from here, definitely not locally sourced. I'm not suggesting anything illicit. That was "what was done" in the sixties, a time when the world would never run out of anything.
They were quite a common artefact back then, declaring in the way that signs made in China which proclaim things like "gone fishing" do today, that this house is at the beach.
