A great fireworks show at Wasaga Beach for Canada Day.  Jamie and I hiked down from 18th street to watch the show as it got dark.

June 25th – simply spectacular. I’ve waited all year for perfect days like today.
June 26 – I don’t think this picture tells the story. I could literally see the rain coming across the bay.
June 26 – I’m usually amazed how there is no mud on the beach. Today was a different story. When the rain came it was so heavy the beach was flooded.
June 28th – I haven’t seen his bird before on the beach.
June 28th – I managed to get an action shot as it took off to get away from me with kayaks in the background
June 30th – for a change of pace, I went for my beach walk at 5:30 AM before starting work. I was hoping to see the sunrise, but this time of year I was a little too late.
June 30th – seagulls were my only company this time of day just before 6:00 AM
June 30th – early morning – The Stage for the Canada Day performances setup and ready to go.
July 1st – Beach One is a happening place. I previously though these trailers were rental accommodations, but turns out they are for vendors – how cool!
July 1st – a nice lady took a picture of me, Jamie and Michelle (left to right) all decked out for Canada Day.
July 1st – Jamie and I headed out later that evening for the big celebration – we decided to walk my usual route. It looks so different with the sun setting.
July 1st – we timed our walk so we’d get there just before the fireworks – sun sets a little after 9:00 PM this time of year.
July 1st – the main stage at the beach for the Canada 150 celebration. Beach was more packed than I’ve ever seen it.
July 1st – the fireworks were just awesome. I’m surprised they let us get so close. I took a million pictures but this one warrants a video instead!

It’s been a wet June at Wasaga Beach, but I continue to enjoy seeing how things change day by day.  Pictures below from daily walks the week of June 18th.

June 18th – We’ve had an awful lot of rain. Various parts of the beach are cut up by run-offs from storm sewers on Shore Lane. Some days you can jump over the small rivers, other days you can’t
June 18th – Sandcastle building competition on Beach one – half a dozen of the castles were spectacular. I chose this one to share.
June 19th – They’re doing a great job getting the beach groomed and in shape for Canada Day.
June 20th – as I started my walk, a beautiful day
June 20th – 30 minutes later as I reached the boardwalk the sky to the northwest looked like this
June 20th – taken just before I retreated to my truck. Heavy rain and a thunderstorm started minutes after I left the beach.
June 21 – winds from the north again – looks like a September day.
June 23rd – I love that the beach is getting decked out with new amenities. Pleased to see our tax dollars at work! I think these poles and rings are an excellent idea. Taken on a Friday with nobody around.
June 24 – classic cars were on display at the beach today. Mom was back from Manitoulin and joined me for the daily walk. Awesome.
June 24 – more cars – I’m showing only a few – there were literally hundreds of cars in the parking south of the beach one pavilion.
June 24th – more cars along the main strip of Beach one.

Beautiful June weather at Wasaga Beach.

June 11 – looking northwest on Georgian Bay
June 11 – I walk by this house every day on Shore Lane observing it from both sides. Rapid progress! This picture taken from Shore lane (the south side)
June 12th – this was my best picture by far this day. Looking east at the start of my daily walk.
June 13th – Someone moved a table to the waterfront
June 16 – simply perfect! Best day of 2017 so far.
