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.

Sunday, October 20th, 2019 – My wife Michelle has an awesome red Jeep named Sally. This is not Sally, but it could be her twin. I took this picture for Michelle. After two days cleaning Beach Drive last week, sand washed on the road is piled in protective berms to try and protect the roadway from more high waves. 
Sunday, October 20th, 2019 – East of beach one, near the far edge of the accessible part of Wasaga Beach. This piece of driftwood has been here for years.
Sunday, October 20th, 2019 – Sand berms removed from beach drive that will hopefully protect the beach from high waves (until a storm comes in November I suspect)
Sunday, October 20th, 2019 – Our front yard @ Rose Court – the leaves are almost at their peak.
Monday, October 21st, 2019 – I took an evening walk because I couldn’t get away during the day today due to work commitments. This pictures taken looking west from the east-end boardwalk.
Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019 – The leaves just keep getting better. It’s going to be painful to pick these up, but it’s worth the effort.

Sunday, October 13th, 2019 – This picture taken looking west along Wasaga Beach from the far east end on a glorious Sunday. The beach one pavilion visible off in the distance.
Monday, October 14th, 2019 – Looking west at the storm sewer outlet at 17th street. Last Fall when the water was lower, this outlet was at least 20 feet from the high water level
Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 – looking east from just west of 18th street. The property with the white fence is at Shore Lane and 17th street north.
Thursday, October 17th, 2019 – High winds today causing more erosion unfortunately. Waves reaching all the way to the boardwalk in places.
Thursday, October 17th, 2019 – When the weather is extreme is the best time for kiteboarders. It was around 7C when this picture was taken. The water temperature at Wasaga Beach averages 14C in October so the water is warmer than the air.
Thursday, October 17th, 2019 – The high winds and lake levels are making a mess of beach drive again. I’ve learned that the cleanup effort required for minor events like this is enormous.
Thursday, October 17th, 2019 – Beach drive is closed because of the wind and water levels – taken from the parking lot at beach one looking northwest.
Friday, October 18th, 2019 – A summer-like day – taken looking southwest from our back yard. The pool is closed, and our emerald ash changing colors.
