The aftermath of Thursday night's snowstorm left us with fairly fierce northerly winds on Friday, and we had reason to be in Meaford. We stopped by the bay for 10 minutes to watch the waves crashing in onto the shore. I'm not sure we have ever seen waves this intense, and it was a beautiful sunny to boot.
The sun had warmed the air nicely by afternoon, but when I stopped here for pictures my hands nearly froze in the very strong winds off the bay.
The waves were large enough a few of the local surfers were out. Don't think this surfing compares to California, but you take your adventure where you can. It's full wet suit surfing so you don't freeze!
At any rate, some serious waves were rolling into the little bay, and crashing onto the shore. You can understand how ice builds up on these rocks in the winter.
Looking west the view was more distant, but you could see the whitecaps everywhere.
By the little playground the crashing waves were coating some trees with icicles.
Uniquely decorated icicle trees!
Nothing to beat Georgian Bay on a sunny day with a strong wind and white caps! Here at home the snow is now almost gone again, as the temperature is soaring. Spring my finally be here for good.
