During the LWI camping and birding trip to Pelee Island, May 5th to May 8th, 2016, we had the opportunity to walk a lot of Pelee Island and view the force of wind and water as we travelled from point to point.

Walking to Fish Point on the south end of the island, we came across an area where sand and gravel had washed and blown inland 50 – 75 feet from the shore. The coarse material had covered up the trail for some distance and to a depth of about 50 cm, or 20 inches. As you can see from the photo below, nothing has been able to push its way to the surface.
