Life on a house boat

We visited a house boat - Amazon style. They are made up of huge logs cut from the forest and strapped together. The average lifespan of a houseboat is about 15 years, and you don't have to pay property tax!

Looking at the cooking fire, I wondered how safe it was. I guess you don't need to worry about a fire truck.

The nice thing about it was a shower was just one step away. Jump in, swim around to the "back door," and wa-lah!

There is a definite danger with the little ones. They learn to swim early in life! One of the children fell in and the mom had to jump in to save him.

It all sounds like a truly amazing experience.

Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. (Philippians 3:8)
