It’s the Gatineau River Yacht Club’s 50th anniversary!
The club’s web page suggests quite clearly that this weekend’s celebrations were open to members and past members only, however I thought maybe I could have a quick look around and hopefully photograph their clubhouse designed by architect James Strutt, who designed two other of my favorite local gems – the Trinity United Church on Maitland Avenue and the Westboro Beach pavilions as seen in this post.
But ….. no luck. Here is as close this pooch and I managed to get.
Looks like a fun place from the mainland though.
This link has a great description of the clubs history.
On the way back along Chemin de la Mine I noticed these interesting sculptures.
And then this fun antique put-put put-ed by.
