This week we got our first snowfall of the season. There were several days with strong Northwest winds that made the daily walk pretty chilly. In just a few days, there was some serious erosion to parts of the beach shown in the pictures below.
The first part of the week was quite pleasant. A warm 14 degrees on Sunday.
A few weeks ago, a boat was offshore and I had no idea what it was. Terry Dubois of Wasaga Beach sent a note pointing out that the boat is called the “Last Time”, a commercial fishing tug out of Goderich, Ontario.
I was not previously aware of boatnerd.com, but apparently, just like people like bird watching, there is a whole community into boat watching – you can look up boats sailing the great lakes at http://boatnerd.com.
I think we’ve all heard the old adage “Red sun at night, sailors delight. Red sun in morning, sailors take warning.” I took the picture below around 7:00 AM on Thursday morning looking out across our backyard. There’s some science behind this saying: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_sky_at_morning
I’m thinking there must have been a lot of scared sailors running around Southern Ontario Thursday. The weather certainly turned nasty.
