This week we got some steady west winds that reminded us how high the water is relative to previous years. It showed the wisdom of letting the beach reclaim beach drive.

Saturday, October 4th, 2020 – Mom heading down the beach with me on a rainy Saturday morning. Too much rain and fog to see the far shore of the Nottawasaga bay today.
Monday, October 5th, 2020 – This is the time of year that the seagulls start to gather before migrating south. They look for warm spots where they can find food.
Monday, October 5th, 2020 – Walking back to my truck through the road into the provincial parking lot near Beach 2.
Tuesday, October 6th, 2020 – Looking across the bat towards Collingwood.
Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 – Steady northwest winds had the beach completely underwater today. I had to walk along the shore and the roadways all the way to beach one.
Wednesday, October 7th, 2020 – At Beach one, even though the sand has been built up over the roadway to protect the business in behind, waves were still washing in over the former Beach drive.
Thursday, October 8th, 2020 – On Thursday early evening, I headed from the Recplex through a bush trail to Beach 6.
Thursday, October 8th, 2020 – Taken at beach 6 looking across the bay towards Collingwood (Collingwood looks much closer from this part of the beach)
Friday, October 9th, 2020 – Looking east from beach 6 with the sun low on the horizon near 6:00pm.
Friday, October 9th, 2020 – Walking east towards beach one. With the wind from the south (to the right in this picture), there was lots of beach exposed today. On Wednesday, waves were all the way up to the grass.
