May 30 - Boathouses

Irene & I went for a walk along the water front on the estuary side of the inlet. What really took my fascination was the beautifully coloured boathouses. We walked past them & they all looked really well maintained so I asked the local girls if people store their boats in these houses. No they don't, these houses are where people actually live. They live in little sheds over the water, most of them had their own private slipway with a boat pulled up it. It really was eye opening to me & now I know why they are called boatHOUSES & not boatSHEDS.
