Splash of color

Not everything is sand and beach grass on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Active development is underway in several communities embedded within the Hatteras National Seashore, adding splashes of color to the earth-toned landscape.

With a wary eye to the elements (the lattice on the lower portion of the home in the foreground covers an empty raised area to allow for flooding due to tropical storms), the high-end housing evokes the look and feel of the Bermuda islands. (Check out the Flickr photos to the right for more shots of Bermuda.)

I love the color! Here in New Mexico, those colors are the norm, not the exception. Of course, the style is different.
