Pointe du Chene Wharf
This has been a gathering place for countless years. When my husband was little he used to fish off the wharf and still many people can be found fishing there. Driving down to the wharf to see the sunset, boats and other people is a long-standing tradition too. For a while it fell into disrepair, but a campaign to save this treasure and enhance it has resulted in repairs as well as several new businesses taking root there in the last few years. There are now two restaurants, an ice-cream stand, a souvenir shop, a "lighthouse" which is used as a lookout, a fish market, lots of parking and, of course, the boats moored there which come from all over. Last night we took a drive down to the wharf and my daughters got some ice cream and we took some pictures of the sailboats. Here are a few.
