NOTE: This is continuation of my earlier post: Dreaming of a Houseboat and a Simple Life.

“Simplicity afloat is the surest guarantee of happiness”.
That’s our favorite quote from L. Francis Herreshoff — romantic, isn’t it?
In today’s frantic world, it becomes hypnotic for me to think of a quiet little place away from it all, where a simple life afloat is all tidy and neat. It’s a curious condition, fantisizing about such things.
One beautiful image of a house afloat can set my imagination spinning, and from a distance it seems so simple and easy.
Look at all the possible anchorages close to Brooklin, each new cove as stunning as the last.
