Sandy Island Beach: Ice to the Horizon

As I mentioned a couple days ago, I longed to look at the ice from the perch along the beach this week. Tuesday dawned clear and remained so, with the lake effect snow coming ashore ten miles to the north, so Brenner and I clambered through drifts, faced a stiff and cold wind on the return, and achieved the objective. There was no other person around, and parking was scarce. 

The sea out beyond, hardly visible but for a sliver, was green, rough and rolling, and about the most inhospitable place I can imagine, at least around here.
