I was working on the Civic Holiday (August 5th) so I headed down for my usual noon walk down the beach thinking it was a regular work day. Big mistake. Not a parking spot to be had. I got frustrated and decided to walk the Blueberry Trails instead – definitely a better choice on a long weekend!
On Friday August 9th, Michelle and I were running some errands and planning a trip to Barrie. On a whim, we decided that Barrie was too far, and we should check out a rooftop patio at the main beach instead. Turned out to be a good call. A steady warm west wind resulted in a mini-storm surge and Beach drive was flooded. You can see where the town anticipated the problem and tried to create sand berms, but the water was too high and flooded the main road. It looks pretty, and made for an interesting day, but I suspect the damage and expense to clean up will be enormous.
