Surf and turf

A handful of uprooted trees and a new sand beach mark the location of what was formerly private lakefront property, just east of Blackwell Beach. High winds and waves two weeks ago gouged out at least 10 metres (33 feet) of the shoreline there. The armour stone in the foreground was placed by the city in an attempt to halt erosion on the public property at the end of Blackwell Side Road. Glenn Ogilvie
