Lakeside beach after flood recedes in Port Dalhousie Ontario Canada

 


the idea girl says
it was surprising to see how much of the beach is missing, at least 150 feet of space is gone under lake ontario’s flood waters
the waves have eroded the sand to a smaller parcel of land to stand on, it will be interesting as the water recedes how much will be gone!

the idea girl says

its hard to see that over 150 feet of beach is reduced to 5 feet in width to walk or sit on!
i hope it recedes more as the water levels decrease, or this is going to really suck for the tourism industry down in port dalhousie!

the idea girl says
so the guy explained how they look for ancient artifacts
they use a trowel to scrape up the dirt and put it into pails
then they dump it in portions into this screen netting and sift out the sand and dirt, looking for artifacts that are buried under the ground
they found a pig bone, cow bone and pieces of masonary, burned bricks indicating there’s a kitchen area in this building they found dating back to 1774 before the WAr of 1812
