Pretty nice, hey?

Now imagine that same view although a massive cruise ship, more than 1000ft long, is coming straight for your dream home... not so nice.
That was the horror experienced by Bill and Yasmine Todhunter.
The close call happened when the 122,000ton Equinox cruise ship was trying to navigate a tricky corner on the Stranahan River.

Bill says the ship stopped about 100 feet from their $2.3 million home.
Yasmine caught the scary encounter on her phone. Check it out here:
A spokeswoman from the Port Everglades Pilots and Florida Harbor Pilots Association has told the Miami New Times: "'Due to the strong winds and current at the time, the cruise ship in question came closer than usual to the side of the channel, as shown in the video."
She added: "As stated by the cruise line, the vessel did not touch bottom. The use of bow thrusters in the channel disturbs the water and routinely churns up silt and mud, as shown in the video."
The couple were understandably shaken, with Bill telling TV station WPLG-10: "When the cruise ship thrusters stopped, there was silence and I yelled 'somebody is going to get fired' and everybody on the cruise started applauding."
