Wasaga Beach

What do you do on the coldest day of the summer?  Why, you go to the beach of course!  We had decided to go to Wasaga Beach on Sunday because that was the only day we could.  It is too far to go up for a couple of hours after school and by next weekend the girls will be at camp.  So we packed our things and hoped for the best.

Unlike the gulls, it was too windy for us to sit on the beach, so we found a nice grassy spot beyond the trees that surround the beach. We had some shade there, but we really shouldn't have worried about getting too much sun.

Every ray of sunshine was welcome.  Instead of a bathing suit and cold drinks, I think it would have been better to bring a winter coat and hot chocolate.  The temperature was only 19C. But the water temperature was 21C, so the girls and my DS went for several 'swims' in the lake.

The girls and DS tried to throw a ball around, but it was too windy for that even on the grassy spot where we had set up our stuff, so they found a better place, farther away from the water, in a secluded area.   These girls have so much energy!

We left Wasaga around 5:30pm.  When we got home I quickly threw together some dinner, stir-fried veggies and chicken fried rice.  Then it was off to take a shower and fall into bed. Even though it was a cold day, it was a lot of fun!

I actually like the beach in the winter here. No tourists. I usually have on a sweatshirt though.
