February Theme Day: When people think of St Francis they think of...

The distinctive thatched houses with white walls, basking in the sun. Laid back holidays, fishing, surfing and enjoying the relaxed atmosphere surrounded by blue sea.

Many other City Daily Photo Blogs around the world are also participating in this theme, pop in and pay them a visit.

Holly city. How are the houses thatched ? Thatched roof or walls.
I know a fine village in South Sweden near the sea Barsebäck with beautiful thatched roof cottages.
