That is the back of the house, Lake Erie is directly behind me when taking that pic. I have a 100 ft long concrete seawall with a 10 wide walkway that caps the seawall. I am standing on the walkway taking the pic. The wall you see keeps the waves from coming up to the house. The one pic is taken from the 3rd floor balcony. The other from lake Erie looking back.

The pics do not show the seawall cap but it is a great place to run the jet skis up to, swim, have a picnic table and a cooler.

The wood blocks are used to fill in the walkway during big storms and usually stay there all winter.

The actual front of the house is where the boat is docked. Very unique set up.

But on a much lighter note, am I the only one who's noticed the half-empty bottle of whiskey in the first pic? No wonder he can't find his tools...

She'll be 13 on Xmas day.

Ummm....that's an extra Corona bottle (not whiskey) in case I finish the one in my hand.

Our humble ranchette overlooking our playground: Mount Diablo. The toy is sleeping next to the oak trees waiting for another nice day to play

The house is on a small island with approx 60 homes. Only 6 are on the front row and the others are on canals. The island is accessed by a one lane bridge from another island called Catawba. If you click on the pic with the boat you can see a small road which passes between the house and the boat.

You can also see the garage on that side. I have some aerials but not on this computer. I will post one sometime in December.

Here's a nice satellite shot of my marina where I keep the boat. In this pic, my boat is alonside the warehouse with the teal cover on it. Normally it sits in the water on the other side of the dock where the Crist Craft is sitting. And the white trailer is where I stay during the summers. Gotta love life on the water.
