So I decided to make the call last weekend to wrap up LOST Swimming for the season. The waves were pretty crazy, but the weather was warm and the water was still warm too… but I had a hunch that would likely be it. Boy, was I right.
Hurricane Joachim hit Oakville this week. I’m sure the US east coast got it much worse, but it is so strong we were feeling it here too!
I went for a run down to the LOST Beach and across the creek to the West Harbour side too, on Saturday. HUGE waves… I even saw someone out there surfing! I thought it was Darren so I waited until he came in, but when he came in I realized it wasn’t him… it was a guy name Darius… who came all the way from Guelph to surf here! He was telling me that the Scarborough Bluffs and Ashbridges Bay were the best places to surf on Lake O… but that this was awesome too!
Funny thing is… it got even rougher on Sunday! LOSTie, Steve Ellis, got this shot on Sunday… wow! Biggest waves I’ve ever seen on Lake O!
But it does make me want to learn how to surf!
