the dreamy houseboat lapse

When I lived in San Francisco, I used to drive over the Golden Gate bridge to visit my sister in Marin. Each time I made it through the wondrous views and frightening bouts of fog, I eventually passed the amazing Saulsalito houseboats. The view, the lifestyle, the small town feel… oh how I longed to live there one day. Years later – I had mostly forgotten about my extreme love for houseboats, except once, twice, maybe three times a blogger. But today I found this beautiful houseboat rental and all those old feelings came flooding back. I especially love this first pic.

houseboats contd.

After today’s commute on a stuffy, stinky, packed bus and the constant reminder of cars zooming outdoors, I drifted off once again into my peaceful land of houseboats…

floating on a houseboat dream

I always had a fascination with houseboats. When I lived in San Francisco a few years ago, I used to drive past Sausalito on the way to my sister’s place in Marin. Each time I passed, I would dreamily gaze upon the beautiful houseboats along the shore. I remember thinking to myself: “One day, I will have my own houseboat and I will travel the world in it!” Today I was reminded of this dream when I saw Apartment Therapy’s recent post on Olle Lundberg. Mr. Lundberg, architect and designer for Ikea, salvaged a car ferry that he found sitting around in Iceland. It is now tied to a pier in San Francisco. This is no ordinary houseboat. It’s got mega high ceilings that create a Brooklyn loft kind of feeling, and unlike a lot of modern day houseboats that have sucummed to being docked up and property taxed, this baby can move! Check it out. I added a few more floating homes to the mix that couldn’t go unseen.

some distraction

Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend. I’m sitting on my couch staring out at the grey overcast skies and thinking about all the things that are coming up at the end of this year. I decided to post some comforting pins as a little distraction. Here are more if you’re interested.
