November brings epic storms. The worst of the damage was down overnight and I’m afraid I didn’t get pictures of the actual wind. The damage was shocking.  The high water is the main reason for all the damage,

Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – looking east from 18th street to a brand new shoreline.
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – a storm sewer drain ripped from the ground.
Sunday, November 3rd, 2019 – the extension to the storm sewer in the previous pictures swept up far from shore. This pictures shows how high the waves must have been.
This garage near 17th street north is far from the shore. This shows how far the waves reached.
The rocks that made up this retaining wall scattered by the waves.
Monday, November 4th, 2019 – Near 13th street – last week I could walk up gently sloping paths from the shore. Today nothing but a vertical wall. I estimate we lost 20 feet of shoreline since last week.

A super fun week with out of town guests who came to enjoy the beach. We managed to have a family get together at our place. A highlight was a trip to Parry Sound to see (for the first time) my sister’s new cottage, accessible only by water on Georgian Bay.

Sunday, June 30th, 2019 – My parents and my brother and my family joining me for my daily walk down Wasaga Beach on the holiday weekend.
Sunday, June 30th, 2019 – Steph and Andrew and Wasaga Beach
Sunday, June 30th, 2019 – We had out of town guests for the Canada Day weekend. Taken on our back deck. A treat to see everyone.
Saturday, July 6th, 2019 – Barb just ahead of me as we trek from the dock up to their cottage near Parry Sound – Still a work in progress (the deck is new) but it’s already awesome.
Saturday, July 6th, 2019 – A view from Barb’s cottage – a free-floating section of dock. The water levels on Georgian Bay are so high that this extra dock section isn’t needed so it’s a diving / sun bathing platform.
Saturday, July 6th, 2019 – A trip up to my sister’s camp near Parry Sound – in a protected bay off Georgian Bay accessible only by water.
