Grosse Pointe Yatch Club





On Lake St. Claire, just north of Detroit.

1)The Grosse Pointe Yatch Club at night from the lakewall along Lakeshore (which becomes Jefferson when it crosses into Detroit).

2)The Yatch club from the Edsel and Eleanor Ford Estate, taken with a tiny point and shoot.

We have company coming today, so I don't know how much I'll be on-line for viewing and commenting.

Excellent photos...I like the contrast between the two...

How long have you belonged to the yacht club?

A master's thesis on horses? Very interesting...what did you write about?

I wrote a master's thesis on a couple of my college professors...it was a masterpiece on horses asses! Heh. Heh. ;-))

Thanks so much, Frank, Jacob and anonymous.

AK, I do have to run!

Jacob, we are not members of any Yatch club. This (top) picture was taken from the lakewall. Al
ong the road.

Ai-yi-yi on the last comment!

I studied the social behavior of free-ranging appaloosa horses, also Arabians.

I love that first one!

That's a very impressive building, especially lit up at night! What is the delicate thing on the left that looks like a sail?

Thanks Rose and Hilda--the thing that looks like a sail is a sail "sculpture." (Or a mast and ropes sculpture." At least I think that's what it is--I've never been in there.
