Unlike yesterday's photos, when we had stopped by for a walk in Memorial Park the day before, the bay was calm. It was warm, and families were camped in the park and enjoying the beach. Meantime, I noticed the sky as much as the water.
Memorial Park was given to the town of Meaford I understand, by a landowning family who still have a shoreline cottage nearby. It's mainly a campground, including sites right on the water, a rarity for a municipal campground.
It's got one of those 'big red Meaford chairs'.
Part of the beach is rocky, but the east part is sandy, and a very nice day use area.
A fair number of people, but not a lot for July 7th, on a warm sunny day!
Far to the west you can see the big Niagara Escarpment headland that marks the Meaford Tank Range, more correctly labelled the Central Area Land Forces Training Centre for the Canadian army - or is it now the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre? I think they've changed the name again. In front of that is Meaford's harbour, with all the sailboat masts and the small lighthouse.
