Living on a Houseboat in Paradise

I think everyone wishes at some point that they could live on a houseboat (or float home, as they prefer to be called) in some nice warm place. Here’s a bunch of people living the dream in Victoria Harbour.

We try not to be too smug about our climate here – especially this week with the weather being seriously awful almost everywhere else in North America, not to mention Australia where they’re having some of the worst weather in history – but pretty soon we’ll abandon restraint and do the annual flower count. It’s always in the millions way before the rest of Canada has seen its first crocus. Sorry.
