I want to remind everyone that the annual Sausalito Floating Homes Tour is this Saturday, September 25, 2010, from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. It's a self-guided tour that will feature 19 floating homes out of approximately 425 in the area. A few docents will also be on hand to answer questions and provide a little history.
The tour begins at Gateway shopping center in Marin City. Take Bridgeway to Gate 6 Road. You can park in the lot and take the free shuttle service to the Marina Green at Kappas Marina. There will be an art show, free entertainment, and food and drinks available for purchase. You can purchase tickets online at www.floatinghomes.org in advance for $35 or $40 at the gate. For more information call 415-332-1916.
