Trippy Thoughts - Sleepless in Seattle Houseboat

One of my least favorite movies after Born on the Fourth of July (even though it was partially filmed at SMU) is Sleepless in Seattle. However, I could fully appreciate the fine piece of real estate that was the Tom Hanks character's house boat.

So you better believe that I was squealing right along with all the romcom fans when we sailed past the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat on our Union Bay tour. See Green houseboat below. According to the tour guide, that houseboat is on the market for 2.2 million. I must be incredibly warped by the Colorado real estate market because all I could think to myself was, "That sounds so reasonable."

I mean, I don't have 2.2 million but we could all pool our money together and get it. Just think of the great blogging we could do inspired by the view from there! See View Below. The Canon ELPH only does 4X, but you get the idea.


  1. We could have tours inside it! Set it up with the big map and everything just like the guy who bought the Christmas Story house!

  2. I LOVED SIS. My brother looked like the little boy so it always reminds me of him.

  3. I'm totally in. I've never been to Seattle, but it looks like fun, and that house is fab.
