Lots to see this week with windy days, kite sailors and lots of wildlife out and about. As soon as the summer residents leave Shore Lane the fox and raccoons are all over.

Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 – I skipped a few days posting pictures to capture the more interesting pictures. High winds on Sept 26th.
Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 – Cool to see people flying an Ontario flag. Taken just east of 18th street. I’m going to do the same.
Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 – Kite boarders were out again today. Their speed is insane. I need to get better at posting videos to show how fast they are moving. Texted these pics to my cousin-in-law Jo Mann.
Wednesday, September 26th, 2018 – the sail is so far in the air it is tough to spot the kite boarder.
Thursday, September 27th, 2018 – looking at some of the favorite properties on Shore Lane.
Friday, September 28th, 2018 – the north west winds were insane today – this is what seagulls do when the winds are too strong to fly. They hunker down, beaks pointed into the wind.
Friday, September 28th, 2018 – high winds again today – looking towards Blue Mountains across the bay.
Friday, September 28th, 2018 – Since moving to Wasaga Beach we see Turkey vultures all the time flying over the beach and also over our house. They are distinctive because of their – up to a six foot wingspan.
Saturday, September 29th. 2018 – High winds and waves continue. Must be Fall.
Saturday, September 29th. 2018 – Property just east of 19th street on the beach (presently listed on realtor.ca)
Saturday, September 29th. 2018 -walking back through the provincial part near beach two to avoid the high winds. A beautiful Fall day.
Saturday, September 29th. 2018 – I met this guy before standing in a field two weeks ago. Shore Lane is quiet with most residents out of town. the wildlife has reclaimed the street.

Monday, September 17th, 2018 – Incredible day for mid-September. Walking along the beach with 30 degree temperatures.
Monday, September 17th, 2018 – looking west from the boardwalk at beach one. You can tell school is back in. Tourists are gone and hardly anyone on the beach.
Thursday, September 20th. 2018 – a little more like Fall today. Looking east on my daily walk toward beach one.
Thursday, September 20th. 2018 – I met this fox returning to my truck near 18th street in a field just south of Shore Lane. I’ve seen him (or her) several times running along the beach but finally managed to get a picture.

September 21st was the day of so many severe storms across Ontario and Quebec including the tornados in Gatineau. We had more damage to our fence following storm in the spring with 100 km/hr winds that did serious damage. Luckily, our fence was about to be replaced anyway. The temperature dropped from 31.7 on Thursday to 5.6 degrees literally over night.

Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 – yesterday’s waves came all the way up the beach into the grass. This picture taken Saturday evening and the beach was still saturated from the storm and high winds. Friday was the day of the Tornados in Ottawa / Gatineau.
Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 – we didn’t have a lot of damage – just the odd tree branch down – taken on the Shore Lane trail connecting 13th street to Shore Lane. Sand dunes from the beach at the top left of the photo.
