Quite a drop in the temperature this week. We started the week with record warm temperatures and by the following weekend it was much more seasonable.

Sunday, September 24th – A seagull convention on a warm Sunday morning
Monday, September 25th – another perfect day with the freshly groomed. Looking to the east from Beach 3
Tuesday, September 26th – taken from the end of the boardwalk looking west. Interesting cloud formations
Wednesday, September 27th – I don’t think I’ve seen this many people parasailing before on Georgian Bay at the same time. Perfect day for it. Warm with a strong northwest wind.
Wednesday, September 27th – Looking west toward a foreboding sky. I managed to get back to 18th street before the rain started.
Thursday, September 28th – another day of rough water but not as windy. A brave soul heading out on her stand-up paddleboard, the dog trailing behind with a life jacket on.
Saturday, September 30th – We had a birthday party at our place on Saturday with out of town guests, so my walk was a little earlier than usual. Note the shadows on the boardwalk as the sun was rising early in the morning.
Saturday, September 30th – I snapped this picture early morning walking west on Shore Lane on my way back from beach one. Despite it being a Saturday morning there was not a person in sight. The beach is deserted except for holiday weekends this time of year.

We enjoyed participating in the Terry Fox walk again this year on September 17th.

Sunday, Sept 17th, 2017 – Team Sissons prior to the 2017 Terry Fox Run. This is a great cause that my brother suggested we join and we’ve supported this since moving to the beach.
Monday. September 18th, 2017 – Looking east near the start of my daily walk down the beach. September is my favorite month. It is warm, but the beach is often deserted.
Wednesday, Sept 20th, 2017 – another ridiculously beautiful day for September. Looking northeast across Nottawasaga Bay on Georgian Bay.
Wednesday, Sept 20th, 2017 – Looking east from beach one toward the volleyball nets. A ridiculously nice day for September.
Wednesday, Sept 20th, 2017 – Looking west from my 18th street entree to the beach
Thursday, September 20th, 2017 – the bush trail to Shore Lane from 13th street.
Saturday, Sept 23rd, 2017 – Just like a summer day during my noon walk today. This picture was taken looking northwest from the west end of the boardwalk at Beach 2

September is here and the crowds are suddenly gone. I seem to have the beach back to myself.

Sunday, Sept 10th 2017 – I love summer, but it is so cool to have the beach back to myself. I’m back to being the only person there on a Sunday.
Sunday, Sept 10th 2017 – Looking west from 18th street at the start of my walk toward the “dog beach” (beach 4)
Sunday, Sept 10th 2017 – look northeast from the beach. Optical illusions in abundance today. Some days you can see Christian Island and other days you cannot. Wondering if this was a laker o the horizon but no binoculars
Monday, Sept 11th, 2017 – The main drag at Wasaga Beach on a September morning.
Tuesday, Sept 12th, 2017 – Mom joined me for our daily walk today down the beach.
Wednesday, Sept 13th, 2017 – Lots of ducks this morning. Another calm day.
Wednesday, Sept 13th, 2017 – The leaves are starting to change. The picture taking at one of my favorite spots – a bush trail that leads to the beach between 13th street and shore lane looking north
Thursday, Sept 14th, 2017 – picture taken at 16th street from Shore lane. Barricades to prevent vehicles from getting onto the beach
Saturday, September 16th, 2017 – Another spectacular day – picture taken looking northeast toward Collingwood and Blue Mountains across calm water.
Saturday, September 16th, 2017 – came across a group no doubt practicing for the Terry Fox run.
