It is a float plane With pusher prop right. Beautiful background.

Looks like Utah

Just from the look of the mountains, I would have to guess that it is Mona Reservoir just north of Mona, Utah. (I know this area fairly well).

At any rate, it is a very beautiful aircraft and photo.

Final guess - Mona lake, Mona, Utah - looking east southeast at Mt Nebo

Nice shot!

Pretty sure your right, thomasj234. There is a small water management facility, off Goshen Canyon Rd on the West side of the lake, where the road takes you down near a dam where Currant Creek comes into the Reservoir. That road behind the Seabee looks very much like the road that parallels the shore line South from that dam. I think there is even a ramp where one might taxi up out of the lake.

Roland,

It is not a float plane. No floats. It is a seaplane or flying boat.

Story & location, well it ran out gas on near Miami beach can't you see the glaciers behind?

In the late 50s, I flew in my Dad's maroon Seabee--his second flying boat. His first was a Grumman that he sold to Henry Ford II. He flew PBYs in the war, so after a few Cessna aircraft, this was a natural progression.

He used to say that stall speed, top speed, and landing speed were all 70-MPH. ;)

Great photo!

Someone spent a lot of $$$ restoring this beautiful Seabee. Wonder if anyone has every found a better engine than the original that would improve the lousy performance? I've seen the twin engine pusher conversion. Looks like a great improvement?

I remember many years ago that Arthur Godfrey on CBS had one.
John Yarno
It has been many years since I saw a CB. Nice picture, when and where?

Yep,the twin forward mounted Lycoming version in the 1970s was called the Twin Bee. But I had not heard about that twin pusher engined version.

???? I saw a Seabee in Navy livery and colors based at Lake Tahoe. The guy had put a Chevy V8 in the plane and this greatly increased performance. It was on the internet 5-6 years ago.
