Ice on the water’s edge on Mahone Bay

The water's edge, tide rising after a cold night

The ice that was shaped by this rock and then broke as the tide fell tide now floats over it on the rising tide.

I tasted the ice that had formed at the water’s edge on a small beach, as I said I would. As predicted, it was indeed fresh, not salty.  A good survival tip, should you ever find yourself shipwrecked on a desert island in winter.
