If the description fits you, we found the place!
For most of the walk along the shore, we looked down at the waves breaking against the rocks or to the flowering plants lining the path. As we rounded a bend, we literally stopped in our tracks at the unexpected sight of the brightly painted houseboats bobbing together along the docks.
We, and the other tourists, had a grand time checking out all the details on the houseboats: bikes hanging on exterior walls, driftwood art, nautical-themed kitsch, and always – great, vibrant colors. We wondered what it would be like to live in the harbor with seals for neighbors and pesky tourists craning for a view? We agreed that, although we think that we’re outgoing and know we love colors, this waterfront is sadly not for us. As they say, “It’s great fun to visit, but we wouldn’t want to live here.”
