A jumble of ice cakes

Now that we've had a few really cold weeks of winter, the ice cake situation at the beach has improved greatly. Our Bay of Fundy tides bring in ice cakes, when the tide turns to go out, they often drop down at the tide line on the beach.

After several weeks this creates a jumble of ice cakes all along the beach - makes for fun exploring if you've got good tread on your boots. My dog, Belle, also likes to chew on them. The ice pebbles we spotted on a different Fundy beach last year are a bit easier to swallow but still, I doubt there is any harm in her taking a nibble of the big cakes!!
