Monday, October 30th, 2017 – At the 18th street beach entrance near Bungalows on the Beach. It was actually hard to see because of the sand picked up by the wind. Monday, October 30th, 2017 – The big waves seem to be bringing in all kinds of silt and debris that the birds are feeding on Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 – It’s hard to express how miserable Tuesday was! The walk started with heavy rain and high winds and turned into wet snow by the time I was done. It was hard to get a picture because I couldn’t get the lens dry. Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 – The view from our backyard when I got home. It was still snowing but it was melting as fast as it hit the ground. Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 – After a few days of wind and waves, lots of silt on the beach. Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 – Picnic tables gathered together to ride out the winter just to the west of the boardwalk at beach two. Thursday, November 2nd, 2-17 – It rained off and on, but I managed to avoid getting wet today. Looking west towards Collingwood. Friday, November, 3rd, 2017 – Definitely the strongest steady winds so far. The beach was completely covered with water in places so I needed to retreat up onto the grass to get buy. Friday, November, 3rd, 2017 – I always take an interest in the flag at this beautiful house at the east end of Shore Lane. I think this might be the end of the third flag I’ve seen this year. The winds just tear the flags to shreds. Friday, November, 3rd, 2017 – You can see the wind rippling across the top of the water. The waves were pushed right up the beach making it impossible to walk on the sand at narrower parts of the beach. Saturday, November, 4th, 2017 – cool! this log wasn’t here yesterday. It must have come in with the the high waves on Friday. It was waterlogged and too heavy to move.
