Things are in full swing at the beach this summer with live entertainment and a regular schedule including weekend events and evening movies on the beach.
I think we’ll look back at 2018 as one of the best summers ever in terms of weather! (although I appreciate this summer is nasty for those battling wildfires – not only in California, but closer to home north of Parry Sound as well).
Sunday, July29th, 2018 – Michelle and I decided to walk down a different section of the beach Sunday. We parked in the residents lot between beach 4 and 5 in order to feel like big shots. I usually start my walk one kilometer east of this location. Picture taken at the beach entrance by 24 street.
Sunday, July29th, 2018 – Taken at 24th street – We couldn’t afford a red carpet, so beach goers need to suffer an equally cool blue carpet down to the water..
Monday, July 30th, 2018 – Looking east towards beach one on a freshly graded beach. When it’s graded like this it is harder to walk. You notice after a few miles. Kind of like walking down the beach in winter after a fresh snowfall.
Monday, July 30th, 2018 – Taken from beach one looking west. A typical weekday.
Tuesday, July 31st, 2018 – You can see the beach has been graded by a tractor. I tend to walk along the tracks left by OPP and park official four wheelers.
Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 – This picture is a keeper I think. Looking from 18th street to the west across Nottawasaga bay.
Wednesday, August 1st, 2018 – Same day as above – learning to stand up paddleboard. Shot at a distance from near 18th street.
Saturday, August 3rd, 2018 – Last week I made a fuss over the Piping Plovers ( post here), an endangered species. The east end of the beach is blocked off with sanctuaries for these little critters. Imagine my surprise seeing one of our friends among the seagulls over at beach 3? I guess they don’t know they are endangered. I tried to explain their situation, but I don’t think the bird understood me. Plovers rock.
Saturday, August 3rd, 2018 – Looking east from just east of 18 street. These cool sandbars keep emerging. They come and go day to day.
Saturday, August 3rd, 2018 – Looking west – another beautiful day.
