Floating Housing Development

leave a comment »

I was making my way through Presque Isle State Park near Erie, Pennsylvania, trying to find a lighthouse when I chanced upon something quite unusual. It was a floating housing development.

Countless people have homes or cottages along the water but it was this was the first time I had seen a cluster of homes on the water in a literal sense.

I’m not sure what the story is behind this development or whether the people who inhabit these home do so year-around or if they are just for seasonal use.

I presume they have motor vehicles that they part near their homes for when they need to run into town to get something.

But going to the grocery store involves both a boat and a car, van or truck.

A floating home would not be for someone who gets motion sickness.
