Note the new 0.1 degree resolution in temperature postings above. I’ve been frustrated trying to get accurate weather history for Wasaga Beach over the past several months and have been considering setting up my own weather station.
I recently learned that I can extract recent temperature data from down the street rather than being re-directed to Buttonville Airport for historical Wasaga Beach temperatures. I’ll rely on
Glendale going forward.
Sunday, September 29th, 2019 – looking west across the beach two boardwalk.
Tuesday, October 1st, 2019 – pool closed for the winter – back at our place on Rose court.
Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019 – Looking west along the beach area two. Blue Mountains across the Bay.
Saturday, October 5th, 2019 – taken from the boardwalk east of beach one looking west at sunset.
Saturday, October 5th, 2019 – Looking east in the evening – beautiful spot east of the main beach.
Saturday, October 5th, 2019 – East of beach one with the sun low on the horizon..
Saturday, October 5th, 2019 – The sandbags are telling – business owners expect a nasty Fall. Sandbags in place to avoid water coming in under the front door of shops along Beach drive when the weather turns nasty in November.

Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 – I didn’t note the location, but this pictures was taken somewhere between 18th and 13th street looking NNE towards Christian Island. You can see that the beach is very shallow 100+ feet from shore.
Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 – Looking east across the beach near 13th street. Although the beach is being groomed by heavy equipment, you can see the effects of erosion from waves. In the early spring, the grass extended all the way to where the water is now. Now you need to be a mountain goat to climb the beach entrances at 13th street.
Wednesday, September 18th, 2019 – These cottages known as “At the Sands” aka “Sandpiper Beach Resort” are near 13th street a short walk from beach one. They are popular with students. When my son was at Newmarket High School they booked these waterfront cottages for a post-graduation party – more details at http://wasagabeachcottagerental.com/
Thursday, September 19th, 2019 – Looking toward Blue Mountain across the Nottawasaga Bay – these shallow sand bars come and go day to day depending on wave action, but the seagulls love them!
Thursday, September 19th, 2019 – walking back home on Thursday, I circled back through the provincial park that runs across the Wasaga Beach shore line. This picture taken west of the west-end beach area 2 boardwalk. Hardly a person in sight.
Saturday, September 21st, 2019 – Taken with a telephoto lens. It’s hard to estimate distance across water, but this dog was at least 120 feet from shore (playing catch). The water is shallow despite the high water levels and there are more sand dunes cresting the surface than last year. I think that as the shoreline has eroded. The sand has stayed close to shore making the beach shallower (and warmer) than usual.
Saturday, September 21st, 2019 – Taken early morning looking inland just west of the Beach area 2 boardwalk near the main beach.
Saturday, September 21st, 2019 – A fancy new sign erected this summer at beach area one that I failed to point out before.
Saturday, September 21st, 2019 – walked back through the provincial park again today parallel to the beach. Fall colors are just a few weeks away.
