With the use of semi-annual data collected from May 1985 to May 1995, this study assesses the evolution of a log-spiral shaped embayment at the Northeast Beach, Point Pelee, located at Canada's southernmost promontory. The emplacement of stone breakwaters initiated scour of the shoreline, and the embayment which developed thereafter adjusted to reflect changes in lake levels, and naturally occurring variance in wave and sediment dynamics. The results from this study will be beneficial to shoreline managers who have to implement decision on the use of structural protection devices for shoreline protection purposes
