Never mind that this gentleman "flashed" me before he dove in. It was a great shot of him splashing into the lake at Woodbine Beach. Photo by Kris Scheuer/Town Crier.

Is it just me or does it seem like summer is finally here?
Better late that not at all. I will take what I can get.
For the third day in a row it has been sunny and warm.
And with the Labour Day long weekend here many of us city folk may be flocking to the beaches to soak it all in.
All the beaches have safe levels of E.coli. This means 100 E.coli (or less) per 100 ml of water.
The city tests water at eleven beaches plus the Sunnyside Enclosure daily during the summer season.
I have the results below for Sept. 5.
