It’s pretty much impossible to complain about weather during the  summer of 2020. We’ve had a wonderful summer. Perfect for swimming and enjoying the beach.

Sunday, July 19th, 2020 – looking east across a deserted beach. This picture taken late Sunday morning. It’s sometimes shocking how empty the beach is even on an awesome summer weekend.
Monday, July 20th 2020 – Looking east from the beach 2 boardwalk. My mom unfortunately lost an expensive set of sun glasses after getting knocked over by the waves today. These waves are much more powerful than they appear from shore.
Monday, July 20th 2020 – I strayed to the far west end of Wasaga Beach today in the evening. You see less tourists around Beach 6. (“Pro-tip”) This is where the locals hang out to enjoy the beach and avoid the crowds.
Monday, July 20th 2020 – Pics from 50th street looking east. West of beach six is now reserved for kite sailors – Fun watch these amazing folks challenging waves on the windiest days.
Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 – Walking towards beach Tuesday morning. Another incredible day.
Tuesday, July 21st, 2020 – I took a second walk on Tuesday. This picture taken west of beach 6 in the evening. No matter how crowded the beach is at beach one, there is a deserted spot to be found.
Wednesday, July 22nd, 2020 – Walking east across the beach 2 boardwalk.
Thursday, July 23rd, 2020 – Another deserted day at the beach. Taken at 13th street.
Friday, July 24th, 2020 – Looking west from high ground @ 13th street.
Saturday, July 25th, 2020 – Beach 6 near 50th street in the evening.

The politics around beach closure have been a little complicated around here. Great news is that despite the confusion around municipal vs. provincial vs. private parking lots, we have a new section of the beach open to kit sailors west if Beach 6. I enjoyed watching the action this week.

July 12th, 2020 – This is new. Areas west of beach 6 are now reserved for kite sailors. Note the new signs.
Taken at beach 6 near 50th street. Great to see so many passionate kite sailors.

Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 – Taken from my usual stopping point at 13th street – Wasaga Beach in foreground, looking west across the bay to Collingwood.

Tuesday, July 7th, 2020 – This concrete slab showed up today along Shore lane. This slab must weigh at least 1,000 pounds or more? I suspect this was caught in the ice and waves and taken by heavy equipment up to the roadway for pickup.
Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 – The trail between Shore Lane and 13th street – looking east.
Wednesday, July 8th, 2020 – Taken at 18th street. People obviously enjoying the beach.
Thursday, July 9th, 2020 – Looking south our south facing deck
