House Moving

March 28, 2013
As the tide comes in on Mission Beach, a barge inches closer to the spot where, at high tide, its steel ramps can reach the bulkhead and a truck pulling a house can make a sharp left turn and drive onto the barge. Judging by the size of the house, the deep sand, severity of the angle and the narrow window of time required to load up and get the barge to deep water before the tide goes back out, the mission seems impossible.
