Angel in the Dunes

While in Seaside, as I mentioned, I stayed in a guest cottage on one of the pedestrian path 'alleys' that was a lesson in small living, the Angel in the Dunes. Measuring in at a total of under 450 sf spread over two floors, the small house read larger than my apartment in the city which is even slightly larger.I loved the cheerful yellow siding which matched the main house (seen to the left).

The Chapel at Seaside

No small town is complete without a church. Seaside has an adorable white board-and-batten chapel built in the tradition of such churches but with a modern edge.The non-denominational chapel was designed by Scott Merrill of Merrill and Pastor Architects on land donated by the founders of Seaside, Robert and Daryl Davis.Designed to be the tallest building in town, the chapel is given extra prominence by being the end point of the center line of town; a true focal point.My father being a minister, I have very definite ideas about churches of course, and this one hits the mark on every item.
