Day 16 - Dream house

My dream house is not anything too fancy or big. All I want is to live on the water (the ocean, or a pretty lake). Whether it is a cottage, or even a houseboat. I just love the water so much.

2 summers ago, I went to a family reunion on Pender Island off the coast of British Columbia. My mom's cousin, Murray, has the most beautiful home there and I could have stayed forever. You can sit on the dock and watch the orcas swim by and watch the seals sunbathe. It is so peaceful and so beautiful.

Or maybe a houseboat...

Or maybe on a hot beach in a tropical location. I'm not picky about the actual house, it is allll about location for me!

I love that house boat! I have a dream house too. It's not too far from where we live now. Except I just read in the paper there was a murder at the house! Is it totally absurd my first thought was, "WOW i bet that will knock the price down a ton"... its okay, you can judge me :)

Lovely Megs! My dream house will have a cottage feel and like you, overlook water. Ideally, it would overlook the Atlantic somewhere off the coast of Nova Scotia. It will have overstuffed couches, creaky wood floors, lots of spare bedrooms, and a big kitchen with room so that everyone can cook at once. And it will have 2 ovens.
