One of the most interesting aspects of Wasaga Beach, Ontario is the constant changing of water colour, from hour to hour from day to day, always changing. My aunt and uncle live on the end of the beach nearer the #10 road and the main comercial beach is at the pin on the map. My other aunt lives in Barrie from where I have shown boats, beaches, gulls and along a boardwalk and will continue to do so. I added a second map to show how far north Peter is from there. I chose to keep Toronto and Ottawa on the map to show the size of that huge province.
