This week we had new construction along the boardwalk. We also had a brave long distance swimmer out on Georgian Bay on the day before Halloween.

Sunday, October 24th, 2021 – walking down the beach much earlier than usual with the sun low in the sky. Taken west of 13th street looking east.
Sunday, October 24th, 2021 – the washrooms at the east end of the beach 2 board walk early Sunday morning. A beautiful sunny day.
Tuesday, October 26th,2021 – Looking west from near Beach one at the entrance to the Beach 2 boardwalk. Very high winds today pushed all the way east. We retreated to trails through the bush rather heading west rather than walk into the wind.
Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 – A front-end loader moving sand away from the boardwalk and piling it along the shore at Beach 2.
Wednesday, October 27th – Provincial park vehicles driving along the beach. Cars are no longer allowed on the beach, but vehicles for maintenance are the exception.
Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 – Provincial park crews are doing work on all the ramps along the boardwalk. Now we know why they have moving sand away from the footings all week.
Thursday, October 28th, 2021 – Our provincial tax dollars at work. New decking on the ramps along the Beach 2 boardwalk. The footing will be a little treacherous in the rain until the wood gets more weathered.
Saturday, October 30th, 2021 – This is the latest I’ve even seen someone swimming at Wasaga Beach. This person was swimming fast parallel to the shore a long way out alternate between front stroke and back stroke (shown here). They were wearing a wetsuit of course. They must have swam quite a distance – more than a kilometer because they were swimming the whole time we watched from shore.
