Powell's Point P.P. 2

By JimV
Another panorama in this time from the top end of the park. I wanted to show and explain the changes that have taken place in this area in the twenty or so years I've been going there. The first was to that little island with the clump of trees - it wasn't always so little, as it stretched past the end of that line of trees behind, with a heavy growth of reeds along the spine which was a summer haven for hundreds of nesting terns, who let you know of their displeasure if you went over there at that time. That happened about ten years ago, the latest changes have been the result of storms last year, first I wouldn't have been able to show you such as this pano. due to the many alders which were growing along the top of the embankment. The path was about 1m (+3ft.) from the edge, but no more, now it's at the very edge and I don't think I'll be going there ever again. The other is a shift of what was a large pile of boulders, the last remnants can be seen middle right. Now one is in the foreground of the pano, the rest are on the beach, the foreground of V2 was a nice sandy beach, you can see what a mess it is now. Hope I haven't bored you with all this but it is a favourite place of ours and we were quite saddened to see these changes, and I'm sure there will be more as the whole length of the Northumberland Strait is experiencing heavy erosion.

Many thanks for your C&C's on the first of these, very grateful to all of you.

I agree with Sandy about levelling, Jim, but still a supreme panorama, and a very interesting write-up, explaining the changes as a result of weather conditions. Carol

We spent some time in Nova Scotia in 1974 (I think.) After a hurricane blew thru We noticed massive changes to a beach we had become quite fond of--- Such is the way of the ocean and storms---
Some lovely images today!

It looks like this island will eventually be reclaimed by the sea, two fine panoramic views and an interesting narrative to accompany them

There's a lot of different currents in the water of v1, Jim. Reminds me of when the wind used to blow over the water in the fjord by our boathouse, and that blue, it's the same colour.
