Interesting images. I bet that boat house was built without the aid of AutoCad. Quite an accomplishment to build it into the side of the hill instead of flattening out the hill first - OR - quite an accomplishment to build it well enough to survive when the hill shifted below it. Any way you look at it, it's pretty cool. :)

Nice captures. Lots of Gulls on the roof. I did read somewhere that birds don't have sweat glands in their feet, so extreme hot and cold doesn't really bother their feet.

Amazing snap shots! That poor old boathouse looks like I feel some mornings!

That certainly is a lot of birds on that roof! Wonder if they make a lot of noise like the rain does?

I like that ok´ld boat house, amazing really that it still stands :-)

Strange that those seagulls doesn´t burn their feet! It must get really hot there very fast.

Have a great day now!

The sagging boathouse is great. Makes you kind of wonder what the boat inside it looks like, or if the boats are all gone and it's just a storage sheed.

Hi Lois, Mona, HermitJim, Christer, Elaine - so glad you were also amused by these photos.

We're not sure if the boat house was still in use, Elaine. There were tracks in the water for a marine railway. But, no one was around the property or we would have asked if the boathouse was still being used. We were curious too, Elaine. Christer, I think that Mona may have the answer to why the gulls don't get hot feet.

Yes, HermitJim we KNOW that same feeling some days!
