Long Point - Evocative, Exotic 3
Boathouses Still Standing
Looking north on Hwy 59
After one last photo 'at the bridge' I walked across Hwy 59, started the Virago, coasted around the corner where once stood the Highland Dance Hall, and made a decision. To the beach? To the old boathouses?
In my mind, the old boathouses bring back more fond memories than the beach. Fishing with Gord and Danny Bucholtz and my dad (in Gord's boat) is a highlight from the late 1950s, early '60s. Maybe Dan can recall which old boathouse was home to his dad's boat, and which street we travelled (1st, 4th? Perch St.? Bass?) to find it.
