May was quite the month of weather with a lot of rainy and cold days. Our area experienced some serious water issues especially in Forest where they say four inches of rain come down in two hours. This made for a very unfortunate situation for many residents in Forest that were affected by high water levels. Also there was a video going around of the water falls at Rock Glen in Arkona. The water fall is usually a trickle and after the sudden rain over night this past weekend they looked like a miniature version of the Niagara Falls.
Here is to hoping for some warmer weather in June!!

For the first time ever we have had a record number of beaches and marinas receive the 'Blue Flag' distinction across our country. Twenty eight beaches and twelve marinas were certified. This being the most in Canada's 15 year history with the program. The 'Blue Flag' program is an international stamp of approval setting the gold standard for water quality, environmental management, education, safety & amenities.
Lucky for us in Lambton Shores we are home to two 'Blue Flag' marinas in Grand Bend & Port Franks. We are also home to a 'Blue Flag' Beach at the Grand Bend main beach. Make sure to take advantage of these superior locations for making your summer go off without a hitch. Another notable spot is the Bayfield Marina that received a 'Blue Flag' designation.
