These are the mailboxes for the houseboats at Galilee Harbor in Sausalito. And there are other houseboat communities in the area -- each one seems to have a certain level of it's own funkiness. Galilee Harbor isn't the funkiest, but I'm going to guess it is probably one of the more artistic.

Actually, next time you are on Jeopardy and Alex gives you an answer of "Redlegs", the question that should come to mind is; "What was the name of the popular band of the Gate Five houseboat community during the evictions for illegal "anchoring out" in the late '60's"?
