Of all the plastic houses I've seen, the Monsanto "Plastic Home of the Future" is the best. It looks like a giant toy, doesn't it? Life-sized Barbie and Ken (also plastic) could live there happily. It's amazing how homey it looks (to my eyes, anyway) when surrounded by the lush plantings. If I had one of these homes, I would have to build a fairytale castle nearby.
Here's a nice view taken from the stern of the tuna boat, looking toward the Storybook Land canals, the Casey Jr. Circus Train, and Cinderella's castle. The eucalyptus trees in the background are left over from the original fruit orchards (they were used as wind breaks) - they make a nice natural wall between the park and the outside world.
