This image was captured while visiting Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in July of 2016. I find the image interesting because the cloud formations in the background show the typical coastal weather in Florida, It was late morning and the heat of the day was building, causing the winds to come off the Gulf on the left while the moist air is carried aloft building rain clouds over the land as seen on the right. I have included two images one framed and one without a frame for your viewing pleasure.

These floating homes do not have motors so they are not considered boats. You can see two of the pilings that hold the home permanently in place along the bank. If you are interested you can actually rent one for a stay in Apalachicola, Florida.
