Sausalito Floating Homes Annual Tour

sausalitofloatinghomes_400_03

I have been wanting to attend the Annual Sausalito Floating Home tour for years.  I finally did and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in purchasing or renting a floating home or just curious about the lifestyle. It's one day only at the end of September and gives attendees an opportunity to glimpse this truly one-of-a-kind floating community.

The Marin Modern website receives 100's of inquiries monthly from potential buyers searching for homes on or near the water and narrow it down to the floating homes because at first glance it seems perfect and romantic and a way to live on the water at a

neve_and_hawk_picture_of_kris_448_02 

Just 3 months ago, on June 10th, Kris and Bob Galmarini opened their first brick and mortar store at 641 San Anselmo Avenue, in the middle of downtown. It was the physical expression of their desire to share their art and their dreams through a line of lifestyled clothing and gear designed and made by and for real people, kids, and families.
