QYC

[click image to enlarge]

All is quiet at the Quincy Yacht Club located in the Houghs Neck section. It was founded in 1874, and is one of the oldest yacht clubs in the country. Located on one of Quincy's peninsulas, Houghs Neck became a popular summer spot for fishermen and tourists in the 1800s.

LOVE IT! An acquaintance from college used to bartend here in the summers, so we would stop by for drinks and hang out on the docks after the YC had closed. Great memories, thanks for the photo!

I'm glad you all stopped by today. I think this place is worth a visit in peak season . . . gin and tonic on the dock anyone?

Cowbark - What a special place to hang out at with a college friend. It doesn't get much better than that.

That Yacht Club looks very New Englandish!

Fabulous photo! It's like a postcard. I love the strong contrast between the red building and the bright blue sky. Very nicely done!
