    This is so cool! What a unique place to live. I like the angle that you captured this. All those little port holes are great. Well done, Ron!

    I had to take a second look to realize that they are truely beached. I llke that you've included the 'attached' dwelling at the back of the first boat. And I too would like to see inside. Very cool shot.
