Beach-huts in front of villas on the seafront.

“Nowadays some of those houses are very close to beach huts,
as if the former protected the latter with all their weight and height.
The villas always catch the passer-by’s eye, puzzling and fascinating him at the same time.
As witness to the passing of time, they are the symbol of bourgeois life in Wimereux, and seem to be there for ever”

From the article “Villas de charme”, published in “Version Femina”,
a supplement to the dailies of the newspaper group ”La Voix du Nord”.
