Figure 23. The eastern end of the Seawall Beach spit gradually slopes into the Morse River channel. This photograph was taken at mid-tide looking east. It shows a rising tide submerging the Fox Island tombolo (where the people are standing). The Morse River can flow across the tombolo (sand bar) and onto the west beach of Popham Beach State Park. The forested Wood Island and Kennebec River mouth are in the background. See Dickson (2008) for additional discussion of the tombolo. MGS file photo by S. M. Dickson taken November 4, 2008.
