One thing about Wasaga Beach is that the weather changes every day. I find myself look forward to colder temperatures. With the snow coming and going, the beach is often full of slush.

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 – taken looking east across the beach from near 13th street. You can see the the damage the erosion has done with tree roots exposed. I regularly see this Doberman on the beach – I’m sure he/she is fine, but I decided to cut away from the beach and walk to beach one through the provincial park.
Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 – looking west from near 13th street – most properties along the beach erect plywood barriers in the Fall to protect their yards from sand driven by high winds that would destroy their lawns.
Monday, November 23rd, 2020 – My favorite boardwalk is looking a little the worse for wear. The water is not high today, but waves are high enough some days this year to threaten the structure that undergirds the boardwalk.
Tuesday, November 24th, 2020 – Walking west with beach one in the distance. The beach continues to erode with record high waters on Georgian Bay.
Tuesday, November 24th, 2020 – Looking across the Bay. we’ve had a few warm days, but there is still snow on the ski hills @ Blue Mountain.
Wednesday, November 25th, 2020 – We had a dusting of snow overnight – usually the waves sweep away the snow, but the wind was calm today.
Wednesday, November 25th, 2020 – Walking west along the beach from 18th street,
Saturday, November 28th, 2020 – Spectacular weather on Saturday. Mom and I walked down the beach together. This picture taken looking down the beach 2 boardwalk heading to the main beach.
Saturday, November 28th, 2020 – the Town is doing work at the 5th street parking lot. I like to park here, but the lot has been closed. I’m curious what that are up to.

We gradually started to get back to more seasonable weather this week. It was time to break out the winter clothes this week.

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 – Tuesday was the first day it felt like winter. A high of 2C with strong northwest winds. There was literally no beach to walk on today.
Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 – I tried to enter the beach at 16th street and this is what the shore looked like.  Not only was the beach underwater, but the trails down to the beach were also submerged.
Wednesday, November 18th, 2020 – The winds had calmed today by Wednesday and we had an overnight snowfall. This picture taken exiting the beach from near 13th street on my way to Shore Lane.
Thursday, November 19th 2020 – This picture taken near 13th street looking southwest. The erosion along the shore is amazing.
Thursday, November 19th 2020 – A big chuck of someone’s deck swept on shore and is bumping up against the boardwalk near beach one. If you look closely, every nail has been popped. There were boards scattered up and down a few kilometers of the beach today. This is the largest piece I could find.
Thursday, November 19th 2020 – Looking west on my daily walk as I head back from beach one. We continue to lose trees along the shoreline near beach 2
Saturday, November 21st, 2020 – I walked down the beach with my Mom today on a cool Saturday morning. Not a person in sight. This picture taken looking west from the west end of beach drive at beach one.
Saturday, November 21st, 2020 – There is a home at the far east end of Shore Lane. I applaud the owners for always flying a Canada flag. The state of their flag is always an indicator of how strong the northwest winds have been coming off Georgian Bay. I suspect they are on their third flag this year – it takes a lot of wind to do this kind of damage!
