Sauble Beach/Friday Fences

 Fencing on Lake Huron

 Sometimes the wind blows fiercely off Lake Huron! This fencing helps control some of the blowing sand.

Pathway to control foot traffic

The fence helps keep traffic off the sand dunes when visitors leave the beach to reach their transportation home.

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

Makes me want to hop the fence, take my shoes off, and wiggle my toes in the sand!

Najważniejszy jest widok za płotkami, jest cudny. Pozdrawiam.
The most important is the view for the fences, it is wonderful. Yours.

I'm old enough to remember when we could drive our cars onto Sauble Beach right up to the water's edge. Just like Wasaga Beach.

Oh I love sand dunes, have you ever been to the Sandbanks near Picton? B

Pamela Gordon said...

Great photos. I love those old 'snow' fences that also apparently work for sand. :) The water looks cold.

Indrani said...

I like the monotone of these fences.

Jill said...

Great shots. The water is so beautiful!

Sandra said...

we have similar fencing on our dunes at the beach, it helps with blowing sand and keeps people off that do not pay attention to posted, do not climb on dunes signs.

see you there! said...

Fences make such great graphics. Those in the second picture look a but worse for wear.

I love fences like this, and these are beauties!

Lowell said...

Look like snow fences to me! But I'm glad they're being put to good use. The dunes are very delicate and very important to the environment. Love that blue-green water.

I just finished discussing a beach trip with my husband! How apropos. Love these images. It looks so inviting and peaceful.

Karen said...

I love the lake when it's rough! I thought that was snow fencing. Cale Hurd is on the tip of the Bruce, 11km from Tobermory.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Looks a wee bit choppy out there EG, the fences I'm sure would be apprediated.

RedPat said...

The water looks fabulous!

Deanna said...

I have always loved the look of those beach fences...kind of an iconic look from the beach!!

Sue said...

That first is one of my favorites ever. It just says "beach" to me.

=)

LONDONLULU said...

Such a quintessential thing to see along these sandy stretches - always brings summer, surf and seabreezes to mind!

Janie said...

Good idea for directing traffic and controlling the blowing sand. We see similar fences along roads here, used to control snow drifts.

Chris Rohrer said...

Thanks for the memory! My hometown along Lake Michigan still uses this technique as well. It does seem to work:)

George said...

It's good to see that fencing is used to help keep people off the dunes.

My name is Riet said...

We have something like those fences around our beaches too. It is nessesary and they look good to everyone.

Karen said...

We don't see too many beach fences here, these ones are wonderful. Great shots of them.

Stephanie said...

Nice fences!

NatureFootstep said...

I saw the same system when I visited Camargue in southern France.

Terri said...

Reminds me of the snow fences in Colorado.

Rose said...

The Great Lakes and their sand dunes are so amazing!

Randy said...

I would love to walk around there.

Gattina said...

Jackie/Jake said...

It's been a while since we've been out that way but is on my list for this summer!

LV said...

Very nice beach and fence combination. You can tell the wind as taken a toll on the fence.

You can feel the force of the wind in the top photo. Nice pic.
