You might like the view this contemporary houseboat offers of the tall Aurora Bridge that spans the Lake Washington Ship Canal where it meets Lake Union. Actually, the bridge is really named the George Washington Memorial Bridge, but hardy anyone refers to it as such. It carries Hwy 99, also known as Aurora Ave., a major thoroughfare running north/south through town, and most people just call it the Aurora Bridge. It is the only bridge spanning the ship canal that is not a draw bridge, and its graceful arches can be clearly seen from across the lake. Unfortunately, because of its height, the bridge has been a magnet for upset people contemplating suicide.
I didn't notice the bridge in the window until I downloaded the photo. I liked the way the reflection's line angled across the window and the line continues to be carried by the roofline. This strikingly designed 1 bedroom 1 1/2 bath houseboat built in 1991 is for sale. Can you guess the asking price? Would you believe only $998,800--but hey, it comes with a kayak! :^) Check out more views of its other features by clicking here, and dream.
