This photo shows a view of the backyards facing the beach of the three houses that I have shown during the last three days. At the top left is the Moroccan house, then the more conventional house, then the glass wall of the very modern house.
The landscaping, with palm trees and other trees with leaves only up high up from the ground provides views to the beach. There are a few houses set back from the beach with thick vegetation for greater privacy, but it seems to me that if you live close to the beach, part of the benefit is to have a good view of the ocean.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos from our trip last month to Asia. We began in Bangkok, which we are showing this week. In the future we will post photos from Cambodia and Bhutan.
