Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Brook to Ocean

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Brook to OceanL’Ardoise, Cape Breton Island

A walk down to where the brook runs out into the ocean. From where I am standing, we can see how nice and wide is the mouth of the brook. At high tide, the flow of the sea’s salty water runs up the brook into the ponds, just a few meters upstream. Then as the tide recedes, the flow of the ponds’ water runs back out into the ocean. All is well when nature doesn’t get angry and rough. When this happens, sand and kelp gets tossed around, disturbing and blocking the flow of the brook.  Sometimes humans and machines is needed.
