I live near what’s left of the Surrey Docks, part of which is now a marina. There are a number of houseboats there, along with other craft repurposed for habitation—a WW2-era US Navy boat, for example—and I’ve often thought that there’s a certain attraction to that kind of accommodation. It doesn’t hold quite the same appeal any longer. This is what I saw as I came home tonight:
I don’t know what happened, but it seems pretty catastrophic. Houses may get flooded, or burn down, but at least they don’t sink.
