The Fog of Wasaga Beach

You must experience this. I posted about the fog here too. It comes on fast; unexpected, creepy. It mists our entire beach town. Often it can be a welcome 'cooling' on a hot day. You won't want to miss it. It happened yesterday on the first day of summer.

You Should Visit Balm Beach

It's like stepping back into the 1930's and 40's. It is delightful, safe, quaint and tiny (no pun intended as it is located in Tiny Township on Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada) - and it's tiny, but it's beachy-mighty! (I posted about it last June here) What a perfect location for a family picnic! Balm Beach is just a short, happy, meandering drive away from Wasaga Beach; you will love peeping at all the beach houses and cottages. We love to go to the world famous Georgian Grill. It has been a shore side restaurant and family arcade since 1934. You'll enjoy delicious homemade (yes truly!) burgers and poutine and onion rings to kill for. Top off the fun with a soft-serve ice cream cone. (see full menu here) The price is so right (affordable) and guess what? - my flag art hangs in there too! For nostalgic family fun that's been a tradition for generations visit Balm Beach soon! You can see a gallery of images here and a gallery of history here.

Worsley School Band Concert

June 18th was a perfect evening in The Beach. The band shell played host to the 2 year old Worsley School Band (conducted by the talented, dedicated and enthusiastic teacher, Mr. Morin - top photo yellow shirt) and wowed the local crowd of all ages. What a great performance! Some rock, pop, jazz, classical and contemporary. You can click on the photos to enlarge. Did you know there was a band shell behind the Recplex that anyone can rent? http://www.wasagabeach.com "Making Music Makes You Smarter"
