I live in a very eclectic community. The architecture is very diverse from old homes to new modern styles, as well as floathomes in the Westbay Harbour. Every day I take Grand Duchess Roo out for her puppy burn off some energy walk and usually carry my phone or camera - Enjoy!
Loved the Christmas ornaments.
This used to be one of the funkiest houses in Esquimalt and was decorated with a sea motif, but alas in the name of progress and high density housing it is being torn down. Progress sucks.
This is called a Monkey tree.
This is WestBay Harbour where our old floathome was moored, the picture is looking up towards Victoria's Inner Harbour.
This is the floathome called the Pink Dishrack, the story behind the name is that when the marina was just new and there wasn't much infrastructure mail was sorted and put in a pink dish rack for the live aboards to come and collect. This house was moored directly in front of us and it was a funky little house. Our house was called the 'Resting Cloud'. I miss floathome living and am still digging around in my pictures to find some to post. I have to say though with the storms we have been having and the wind I am actually pretty happy I am a land lubber and happily warmly ensconced in my dry, non-moving home.
Times have certainly changed in the marina, now the little funky floathomes have been replaced by 'Monster' floathomes. They are cool, but they are not as individual or as funky as the ones that used to be moored in the marina.
