... were comfortable and had everything we wanted. It seems we are the only guests tonight and have the whole boat to ourselves!

We went up on the deck to sit in the lounge area. It was hot and after a half hour, we decided to walk around. We ran into the owner/manager of the houseboats. He talked about the boat next to ours.
