Oh that's just great. What a great idea, a rolling cabana! Museum of the Sea sounds like a wonderful place to visit JM. More???

Interesting that they added an overhang to the roof to give them some shade while walking in and out.

Could someone come pick me up at my house and roll me to the sea inside it?

Very clever little mobile cabana.

How cute! Btw, I'm thinking of a holiday in Portugal this August... any thoughts or ideas as to where I should go. I'd like somewhere off the beaten track :)

I don't see what this wouldn't work today. The only problem is that my "friends" would probably send it a-rollin' right into the water! They think I'm all wet anyway!

Never heard of these before.

Oh, man, that looks somewhat creepy! I guess I'd just put my swimming wear and dress something on top of it, so I'd be ready when I arrived at the beach!
God bless you!

It looks cute, and I guess lots of summer-secrets have been told there over the years:)

This is so cute. Looks like a children's play house.

I am ready to live for a week in this cabin, if it will be rolled to near the sea:-))

joo said...

Of course I do:) It's great!

Lois said...

Fantastic shot! I can just picture a whole group of these lined up on the beach with people waiting to get in and put on their old bathing suits.

Love those beach dressing carts. Reminds one of a more modest era - you wouldn't change into a Speedo in one of those.
