It was a treat to see Kite Sailors around Beach 2 this week on a Sunday evening. It wasn’t quite windy enough, but they gave it a valiant try. Most kite sailors are not at Beach area 6 where there is a section of the beach reserved for kite sailors outside of swimming areas.

Sunday, August 30th, 2020 – I took an early evening walk on Sunday as you can tell by the low sun. Walking along the beach head east toward beach one. This picture taken looking west looking across the bay towards Collingwood.
Sunday, August 30th, 2020 – Taken at 13th street on my way back from beach one. A beautiful evening.

We needed to take a few detours to walk along the beach given water at record highs.

Sunday, August 23rd, 2020 – With water on the Great Lakes being at record highs, I need to detour and walk on the beach in places. This picture taken at 12th street looking east on my way to beach one. What is noteworthy is that the telephone exchange box destroyed in an earlier traffic accident has no been rebuilt (lower right)
Sunday, August 23rd, 2020 – Walking the few blocks along Shore Lane is sometimes a “beauty contest” of classic cars. Don’t see a Lamborghini every day @ Wasaga Beach!
Tuesday, August 25th, 2020 – Walking back home along Beach 3. I think that the water is finally starting to get lower?
Tuesday, August 25th, 2020 – West winds generating some waves on Georgian Bay – Looking towards Collingwood.
Thursday, August 27th, 2020 – Cloudy and warm. A perfect day for a swim.
Saturday, August 29th, 2020 – This picture taken from the far west end of the boardwalk at beach 2. The end of summer is near.
Saturday, August 29th, 2020 – For a Saturday, today was shockingly quiet. I guess that the weather forecast scared people away.

This week we had an all-day rain event Sunday that is keeping the neighborhood grass nice and green (and the weeds growing).

Despite the rain I decided to walk down the beach anyway.

Sunday, August 16, 2020 – Looking west along Wasaga Beach from under my umbrella. Too much overcast to see the Blue Mountains.
Sunday, August 16, 2020 – A rare rainy day during the summer of 2020 – Looking east from near 13th street at Wasaga Beach
Monday, August 17, 2020 – A pleasant Monday with a cool breeze. I’m taking too many pictures from the park on 13th street (mid-point on my daily hike to beach one). Unfortunately, with the water still at record highs, it’s hard to walk directly on the beach this year without disturbing people. In places you need to wade into the water to get past collapsed retaining walls.
Tuesday, August 18th, 2020 – Taken from down on the beach west of 13th street. The Blue Mountains are in the distance across the Nottawasaga Bay.
Thursday August 20th, 2020 – Looking along the beach two boardwalk on an overcast day.
Friday, August 21st, 2020 – An awesome red ’67 Chevelle parked along a home on Shore Lane. I hope the owners don’t mind me posting this picture.
Friday, August 21st, 2020 – Approaching the beach entrance at the park at 13th street from the west.
Friday, August 21st, 2020 – Looking west across the beach from near 13th street. Last year where I’m standing was a grass covered dune. High water and waves in the Fall caused enough erosion that there is a beach once more (albeit small compared to previous years)
Friday, August 21st, 2020 – Looking east from near 13th street to the crowded parts of the beach at beach areas 1 and 2.
Saturday, August 22nd, 2020 – A tree covered part of Shore Lane – walk west on the way to 20th street and the beach 3 entrance.
Saturday, August 22nd, 2020 – There is no beach anymore in places along beach 4 because of the high water. Still a great place to swim though.
Saturday, August 22nd, 2020 – Volleyball teams up from the city hanging out at the Provincial Park at Beach 4
Saturday, August 22nd, 2020 – A boat anchored off shore at Beach 4 on a perfect Saturday morning.
