Seattle is certainly a hilly city. This does mean you can find yourself in locations with a pretty cool view of other parts of the city including the lakes. I was up above Lake Union and got a great view of some of the lakeside features on the opposite shore. Houseboats are arrayed along the shoreline and, unlike some houseboats I remember from my childhood, these look rather nice. They are still a compact space but they look in good shape and they clearly have quite a nice view out of the front door. I wonder what they are like to live in. Do they get very damp or are they not a problem to control I wonder? Anyone know anybody who lives in one?
