Vacation trailers

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 28 August 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Right off the beach was a parking lot, and adjacent to that were rows of single-wide trailers. We assumed they were short-term rentals for vacationers, but some might have had permanent residents. Most were plain or minimally decorated, but this bright green one was decorated with dozens of pairs of brightly colored flip-flops. The trailer in the distance has a small plaque that says "the beach is my happy place."

As you can see, the skies were darkening, and it rained buckets for most of the rest of the day.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

That is not so nice rain during the holidays, but your photo with the funny decorations on the green container is special and colorful.

What a great standout at the beach with this decorated trailer! I wonder how "rad" the decorating is inside. :-)
