Open sesame


I was recently invited to the Royal Yacht Club of Toronto. To get there, you have to take a ferry boat out to the little island the club occupies. On our way there, we passed this drawbridge. It looks pretty neat, but I doubt many tall ships pass through here. But if they do, the bridge can adapt! 

If you like bridges, take a look at Sunday Bridges for more.

Looks like a massive structure, very interesting!
Will you show us also pics from the club? Must be a charming place.
God bless you!

It looks kind of like a transformer. Nice for the club to have its own island. - Margy

In many places, old drawbridges like this are being replaced by higher bridges. But, I still like to watch the drawbridges operate, even though I also get exasperated if I am on the wrong side when it is being slowly raised.

I like these bridges and it would be nice to catch it open...

A pity we don't see as much shipping as we used to...

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
