A Scoop Of Whimsy In White Rock

WAKING UP to a flute player on the balcony and a crowing rooster decorating the front lawn must make the owners of this house in White Rock smile.

I enjoy seeing their leap into whimsy each time I travel along Marine Drive.

The obviously creative owners are local artists I believe.

The eye candy they call home reminds me of strawberry shortcake, lollipops and ice cream sundaes.

The more you look the more you see. It took a while to realize there was a pig with polka dots on the patio beneath the suspended bicycle.

No matter which direction you turn your gaze there is something new to discover.

There are delicious swirls and curls everywhere and gumballs the size of Easter eggs.

And why not add a pink playhouse to be the cherry on top of such a fantastical home?

Does the whimsy stop at the front door? I can easily imagine there is much more creativity to find under the umbrella and roof of that house. Maybe one day I will receive an invitation to come inside.
