Island Amenities

There are several yacht clubs on the Toronto Islands and most evenings during the summer you will see the harbour full of boats of various sizes. This is a pic of the Queen City Yacht Club which is located on Algonquin Island, the only  island other than Ward's with residences. Most of the members of the clubs live on the mainland and use the ferries or water taxis to get to their boats.

...every island needs a yacht club.

How lovely to dock your yacht at the Yacht Club after a fine days sailing. Your photo makes this look very inviting.

There are some nice looking boats in this group. When I was working in Chicago back in the late 90's, I used to love to watch the boats come in from the lake for winter storage. The owners would make a party out of it and a parade of boats with party-goers on board would go up the Chicago River toward the storage facilities. When spring came and the ice melted, the parade would go the other way back out to the lake and all the yacht clubs.

A very pretty scene. Must be an interesting lifestyle to live there.

It must be lovely to own a boat.

The summer life. We also have quite a few yacht clubs around the Swan river in Perth, and Perth is the state capital with most boats per capita, apparently 20% of it's residents own a boat (but not me!)

Looks like a great place to keep a boat. So pretty there.

Ah yes, this is a must and probably quite the fascinating place to just sit back and watch!

Wonderful to have the privilege of owning a home on one of the islands!
