After floods at beach one this summer, the town did a remarkable job getting beach one back in shape. With Georgian Bay this high however, I fear we will see a log of damage along the beach when high winds come in the Fall.

Sunday, August 25th, 2019 – Beach one is finally back to normal! Taken mid-day along the main strip of beach one looking east.
Sunday, August 25th, 2019 – Taken in the evening east of 18th street looking east. The water levels are at a record high, but the waves have re-shaped the shoreline at the expense of a few trees so the beach is walkable again end to end.
Sunday, August 25th, 2019 – Met these Canada Geese on my way to Beach One on Sunday evening.
Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 – This is my gold standard when it comes to determining the water level. This storm sewer drain doesn’t move. There was a south wind today, so the water level is two feet further to the left / north. Last year there was 30 feet from the drain outlet to the shoreline.
Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 – a few weeks ago, this part of the beach near 13th street was unwalkable. High winds have eroded the shoreline and created a new beach.
Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 – The new “skinnied down” main beach.
Wednesday, August 28th , 2019 – looking west from near 13th street.
Wednesday, August 28th, 2019 – this new bug caught my attention on Shore Lane – I haven’t seen this one before.
