A Moving Day in the Bay

First the house gets unwired unwatered and all that sort of stuff. Dock connections are being taken care of and away they go.

Where is the navy?

It arrives in the nick of time

Passing of the lines, the tug takes over from here.

The sea journey has begun, a new place ahead.

Safe sailing.


About Joseph de Lange

Before retirement worked in art galleries, a photo studio, offices, and the trades. Don't travel much anymore but still photograph. For the past 5 years 95% of my photography is done with the phone. My prediction for big cameras: DSLRs and their beautiful lenses and even the smaller mirrorless cameras will be mostly a historical footnote in the not too distant future.

  1. I love that last shot with the smoke coming out of the tug boat as it guides the house out.

    What a way to move. No need to pack much, fasten a few things down and head on out.

    Wow, I have never seen a house being moved this way 😀 But the cat inside was not amused I guess 😉

    Great photos 🙂

    • All I know about that cat is that it is never outside, but you can see it wonder. Cat on a journey.

        Joseph … How little you know about Cheezie the cat. He always tries to run away. Just last week when Judys’ powere was disconnected, Cheezie managed to sneak out the doggie door where the extention cord hooked Judy up to my power source. I had to rescue him. So we call him the cat that always comes back. Great job.

  4. We’ve shot this house before, ourselves! Hard to imagine it heading away from the beautiful marina on it’s way to a new home! Great set, my friend, I really enjoyed this post.

    • The house has been on this marina as long as I remember. Moving is a bit of an adventure do to currents and ever changing weather conditions, but I hear that this home arrived at its destination safe and sound.
