Checking out the general scene.
I like impressive houses. Especially ones that are well kept and well designed.
Not because I envy them, or because I want to live in one, but because I always wonder why someone would want to own such a large space.
I find it fascinating, having eighteen rooms, or six bathrooms, or five toilets, set in ten acres of lawn.
I always wonder if the owner actually visits those toilets one after another, or sleeps in those bedrooms from time to time.
Here is a floating house at the garden gate.
We were driving down the road, and we saw this truck standing there. ( click on any picture to enlarge it)
I said that these guys used that to deliver their jewellery.
( Fracking lot of solitaires you going to deliver in there.)
Anne, being more, ah, savvy, said they use that as a mobile sign board.
She was right of course.
We went in there and spoke to a very nice lady owner and she said Boca Roton has severe signage restrictions, and so a way around it was to park a truck with signage on it to circumvent the locally strict by-laws.
This goes to show that even here, the civil servant is not allied to entrepreneurs.
This available place was the very best we found today.
$1800 per month.
With a 50 square meter building in the back.
And a large paved area.
Large signage on the side.
Anne spoke to the owner and he seemed a very nice guy.
Sigh, I would move in tomorrow if we had the visa.
Or if we lived in another time.
But these days, it is the bureaucracy that controls every ones life.
A boat storage place. American style!
Got to admit that beats Bobbies Marina in St Maarten....
