My Quest for financial freedom alongside living a consciously cool life.
One more guess... although I've not been there (yet) it's what I'd picture a remote fishing area of Newfoundland or Labrador to look like. Lots of rock outcropping and colourful housing.
One of my favourite coffee table books is of outports. Now that I've seen a few in different parts of the world, I can say they do share similar characteristics like you said -- rock outcropping, colourful housing. Shaped to withstand the wind, snow and ice loads. I've often dreamed of owning one of those houses, perched up over the water. I'm not entirely sure I'm tough enough to be able to live in such harsh environments though.
