Things seem to be getting back to “almost normal” – by Saturday June 20th, the beach was packed. Part of the reason is that the beach appears busy however is that there is far less beach with the record high water.
Sunday, June 14, 2020 – The town did a great job building a retaining wall. With record high waters on Georgian Bay it was necessary to turn what used to be Beach Drive into park of the beach. The retaining wall always protects the businesses along the beach from water damage.

Monday, June 15th, 2020 – Look west from the start of the wester boardwalk near beach one around the noon hour on Monday.
Tuesday, June 16th, 2020 – Although the beach is open, it’s still shocking how deserted things are on weekdays.
Wednesday, June 17, 2020 – For a change of pace I decided to walk down to beach six on Wednesday evening. This is where the locals tend to hang out. This picture shows an inlet with stagnant water.
Thursday, June 18th, 2020 – You don’t see this every day. A tightrope walker practicing his craft in the park area south of beach 2. I watched him use a come-along to create sufficient tension on the rope that he could walk across it.
Friday, June 19th, 2020 – Taken looking to the east at Beach one. People showing up early for what is likely to be a busy weekend.
