Houseboats on Lake Union
Friday evening we went for a kayak trip on Lake Union, and took lots of houseboat pictures.
|We rented kayaks at Agua Verde. These folks went kayaking with their dog.||The Eastlake Ave. bridge with a tanker.|

|The parade of houseboats begins!||Gasworks Park.||Houseboats with the Seattle skyline in the background.||A houseboat with multiple iron scuptures.||Most of the houseboats float on these huge timbers, some of which look kind of worm-eaten.||Houseboat alley||Wonderful deck.||Most of the houseboats have at least a canoe or a kayak.||This one is very sleek and modern looking, but not that appealing to me.||More houseboat alley.||This houseboat was for sale||I was thinking that this boat was the "bunk and breakfast" that I've heard Seattle has, but I couldn't find anything on it online.||Very boxy looking. I like the idea of a huge deck on top, though.||Another huge rooftop deck.||Eric did most of the paddling while I took pictures.||These houseboats weren't along the main waterfront, and so would have been a little quieter.||This was maybe an old floating fish processing plant?||This houseboat has a hallmark 70's look - funky, lots of tiles.||A very cool modernistic one.||Spare and simple - I like this one.||Another one for sale.|
