Sunday, November 17th, 2019 – Looking west across Nottawasaga Bay. The beach is frozen solid, but the water is still too warm to freeze except along the shore.
Sunday, November 17th, 2019 – This picture doesn’t do the scene justice – there were Canada Geese as far as the eye could see today near beach 2.
Sunday, November 17th, 2019 – I’ve posted pictures of beach one earlier. Shocking to see how the beach has overtaken the road with record high water on Georgian Bay.
Sunday, November 17th, 2019 – Good thing the business owners along Beach Drive had the foresight to install sand bags. During a few Fall storms, the waves clearly got right up against the shops.
Sunday, November 17th, 2019 – I took a second walk in the evening – the water in a low area of the beach is gone leaving frozen ice – looking NE from east of Beach One.
Monday, November 18th, 2019 – A rainy day. I was soaked by the time I got back to my truck.
Tuesday, November 19th, 2019 – Beach One looking east. The waves have made a mess of Beach Drive. very sad.
Thursday, November 21st, 2019 – Looking east across Wasaga Beach near 13th street.
Thursday, November 21st, 2019 – it was slightly above freezing and this brave soul was in the water at Beach One. Apparently looking for something.
Friday, November 22nd, 2019 – A windy day – looking west towards the Blue Mountains from Wasaga Beach
Friday, November 22nd, 2019 – The combination of high water and strong winds has make the beach tough to walk across. I made it but got a soaker just east of this spot.
Friday, November 22nd, 2019 – This is the highest I’ve seen the waves reach during my daily walks – this is normally one of the widest sections of the beach west of 13th street and today the waves were reaching all the way to the breakwaters. (During overnight storms, the waves have been higher as evidenced by all the damage long the shore this year)
Saturday, November 23rd, 2019 – A bright sunny day for a change – looking east across a newly refurbished section of boardwalk on my way to Beach one.

Monday, November 11th, 2019 – taken near 13th street looking east with steady lake effect snow.
Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 – slush piling up along the shore. While the air is cold, the water is still too warm to freeze. 
Tuesday, November 12th, 2019 – We’ve had snow squall warnings all week. 
Wednesday, November 13th, 2019 – you can tell that the waves were higher overnight because of the frozen beach and ice caked on the vegetation.
Saturday, November 16th, 2019 – this is new in the last week. High wind and waves have “sheared off” a ~20-30 feet of sand dune leaving a vertical wall at the high extend of the waves. This happened literally overnight.

Monday, October 29th, 2019 – this is our second batch of leaves.
Tuesday, October 29th, 2019 – Most of the residents along Shore Lane have installed plywood barriers to protect their properties from high wind and blowing sand.  These barriers prevent sand from the beach destroying front lawns.
Friday, November 1st, 2019 – Taken at beach two along the boardwalk on a windy day.
Friday, November 1st, 2019 – The waves from a late October storm clearly reached under the boardwalk and eroded the sand here.
Friday, November 1st, 2019 – Looking across an angry Nottawasaga Bay toward the ski hills @ the Blue Mountains
