But rather then dwelling on this unfortunate turn of events I decided to remind myself why this madness called working on boats is all worth it.
First, living on the water we can easily slip into our canoe and kayak
and take a little paddle whenever we want. We have already been out four times, which is three times more then last year.

Another bonus to living on the water is all the wildlife around us. Now that its getting warmer we have seen baby geese and ducks, water snakes, turtles, and all kinds of birds. This provides simple and fulfilling entertainment for both us and Billy and Chopper. In fact I'm not sure what's more fun, watching the ducks or watching Billy and Chopper watching the ducks.

Another plus to this boating life style is the marina. Not only are the "neighbors" really cool, but the simple pleasure of coming home to the gently splashing water against the dock is awesome.

The last thing I will mention here is the light. Light everywhere! Coming from the warehouse, , where you couldn't tell if it was morning or evening outside, versus living on the boat where we are surrounded by windows, is spectacular! We can grow plants, and see what we look like in the daylight!
