Striped houses of Costa Nova (Costa Nova do Prado/ Portugal)

Once used by fishermen- who painted the houses in bright stripes to stand out against the pale tones of the sand - these single storey shacks have over time been converted into beach huts by holiday guests.

Fun to walk around in on google streetview:

Upon closer inspection on google streetview I also found a different pattern that seems quite common there :)
