Encinitas, USA - September 27, 2012: SS Encinitas and Moon Light House Boats, Encinitas, California. Wooden homes built to look like boats.
Description
The SS Encinitas and SS Moonlight, located in the North San Diego town of Encinitas, are actually houses shaped like boats. These were never seagoing vessels; rather, they were homes built of wood recovered and recycled in the early 1900s of lumber that was too short to build a traditional house. At the time, they were visible from Highway 101, but are now several blocks west because of building between the highway and where the boat-houses are located. They are only a block away from the Pacific Ocean and are a popular drive-by tourist attraction.
