Oddity Factor
Assessment of Authenticity
Dan Blankenship refers to "a steady stream of water cold be seen gushing forth from the sand... We dug into it by hand and the water gushed out of a vert coarse gravel and of course it was salty. We couldn't proceed further because of the tide." Note Dan Blankenship's reference that this location had the same white and pink coloration as suspected in the South Shore "Ice Holes" flood tunnels entrance locations.
