It's been a beautiful day, a little on the hot side, but it appears this will be the only sunny dry day til Sunday, so as you can imagine, I got out! Propelled myself down to the waterfront and for only the second time this year explored northward to Raper Park The waterfront was busy with tourists or locals seeking some breeze.
There were more little sailboats out than I've seen in a long time. I counted 10 in this picture, including the blue hull of a boat down, just beside the second sail from the left.
There were numerous people just sitting in the shade (or sun) relaxing.
Both beaches were in use, this one the gravel beach, the other is sand.
It was these four small boats setting out from the harbour that I saw first, from the sailing school.
They sailed northward and met up with six others that were already out there. That's how you get 10 for the top photo.
I can't believe that I've never stopped and made note of this cairn and plaque before. It was erected as a 1967 Centennial project to remember the first postmaster of Meaford who started his job in 1841. The original post office was across the street behind me.
This looks like such a relaxing time by the water. Perfect!ReplyDelete
By all appearances it was a good day to be at the beach. When I was a boy the beach we went to was large gravel (part of the terminal moraine of the Wisconsonian glacier) and it was not a pleasant place to walk.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful day and so nice to see all the sailboats!ReplyDelete
It was a good day to head down to the water!ReplyDelete
Good views of the water.ReplyDelete
Reminds me of being by Lake Huron in Sarnia.ReplyDelete
I love to watch sailboats. I enjoyed seeing the sailing school at Collingwood last time we were up that way. We had the priviledge of going on a tall ships cruise a few years back. Gosh I loved that.ReplyDelete

It is relaxing to watch sailboats out on the water. It looks like a beautiful spot in which to just hang out.ReplyDelete
What a lovely place to relax and watch the action on (and in) the water. Hopefully the weather improves and you'll be able to get out there more often.ReplyDelete
Great place to hang out! I hope you get to do this more often this summer.ReplyDelete
