SeattleAfloat.com:  Seattle houseboat blog with lots of great info about floating homes on Lake Union and life in the ultimate Seattle waterfront way to live:  Seattle houseboats

HouseboatEats.com I love this great website – what a wonderful idea and there are so many amazing recipes on here created in their tiny little Seattle houseboat kitchen:)  Just check them out!  Talley and Beryl are so cute and the dishes created and written about are truly inspiring.

I think they might have a lot of cats for one floating home, but that is my own personal opinion – doesn’t seem to make their quality of life go down at all!
