Sheldon Point Sunrise Shoot Wednesday Sept 16th

Weather for Wednesday is much more encouraging than today (Sunday). We should have a lovely sunrise over the city skyline.

Where: Sheldon Point Lookout – immediately west of the footbridge over the Humber River, by the rock garden.

Come south on Park Lawn Road from the Lakeshore, and head left onto Marine Parade Drive. There is a small parking lot at the east end of Marine Parade, and on street parking immediately west of that. Walk east on the pedestrian/bike trail – it’s about 300 meters to the Lookout. Watch for bikes and joggers – this pathway is well used even at that early hour!

When: The sky begins to lighten from about 6AM, with colour growing over that time. Sunrise proper is at 6:58 AM. 

Overnight low is forecast for 11 degrees, and it can be breezy by the lake….so bundle up!

UPDATE – Rattray Marsh Outing

As of 9 PM Saturday, the weather forecast puts the chance of showers after sunrise at 30-40%. That’s still promising, so the outing is still ON. Come prepared for the weather. Please check the weather in the morning before heading out – we will NOT go if there are still thunderstorms happening in the morning. Text Paul at 416 571 6175 in the morning if you need an update.
