May was a month of record rain at Wasaga Beach.

May 21st at Shore Lane near 18th street. We’ve had record levels of rain this month.
Mom joined me for a walk May 25. Rained steady without a break. My mom is very cool – like me she actually enjoys this and finds it interesting.
May 26th (our wedding anniversary) was very cool. A clear day, but cold air coming in from the bay to the north. The sand was actually steaming!
I was following this nice lady on the boardwalk. I was trying not to look creepy. The fog was localized to the sand.
May 26th – hard to believe unless you are there, but this pic tells the tale I suspect.
On Saturday May 27th (Ben’s birthday) I came across an awesome go-cart race at Beach One. Hats off to the local sponsors for supporting this – watched this for 30 minutes.
May 27th – very cool. I can’t believe the effort that went into every go cart.

May 14th – Another day with strong north winds – the wind-surfers at it again. I met these folks just to each east of Beach one – further than I usually walk.
May 14th – People are brave to be out on the water.  High of twelve degrees today.  This picture taken late morning so single digits.
May 15th – another windy day. I’m almost getting bored of seeing wind surfers – LOL.
May 16th – A rare calm day.  Pleasant walk up and down the beach today. Something to be said for silence.
May 16 – on a different front, after opening our pool the week before, chemicals finally OK and safe to use. My son Jamie taking his first dive of the season. The water was 58 degrees before we heated it to a balmy 82.
May 18th – a truly spectacular day. Notice the clouds – looks like July!
May 18th – I often walk down the beach from west to east and come back on Shore Lane. I always admire this house @ 16th street.  With the GTA real estate nonsense, these homes on the beach are worth a lot of money.
May 20th – Welcome to the Victoria Day weekend. Starting to see customers renting the hundreds of cottages and rental properties I pass every day.

Mom and I wondering where this stump came from. Wasn’t there the day before.
The seagulls are clearly back. All up and down the beach
May 9th 2017 – looking toward Collingwood and Blue Mountain. The beach has been graded again as you see in the foreground.
May 9th – some brave souls off in the distance stand-up paddle boarding. I don’t know the water temperature, but I’m guessing mid fifties Fahrenheit.
May 10th – Definite signs of life at Beach One.  No leaves on the trees, but unlike the winter months at least there are people around!
May 11th – caught this duck swimming in close to shore on a calm day
May 13 – Today was so incredible I had to go down the beach twice – Caught the morning fog burning off over Nottawasaga Bay
May 13th – you could not see where the water ends and the sky begins.
May 13th – In the after – photo over the dunes after the mist has burned off
