There may be cars at the front yard, but the back yard of this house has its own seaplane.

  1. I’m sure they fly to wonderful places that are inaccessible by other means!


    It doesn’t take an ocean
    Or a mighty sea,
    A simple little raindrop
    Is enough for me!

    I also like the jewels
    Scattered in the grass
    After summer thunderstorms
    Soak the earth and pass.

    There’s also perspiration
    Clinging to a nose—
    A sign of honest labor,
    Or so I suppose!

    Wonderful, most wonderful,
    Are the seven seas,
    But give me downy snowflakes
    Clinging to the trees!

  2. This looks like paradise on earth that these fortunate people can fly away from and return on a whim. 🙂

  3. The ultimate in weekend escapes.
    I’ll never forget seeing a yacht which carried a seaplane hung from the stern on davits, instead of a dinghy.
