Photo: Tourist Attraction Flowerpot Island

This picture illustrates a seastack rock formation on the shoreline of Flowerpot Island in the Fathom Five National Marine Park in Ontario, Canada. The park is a popular tourist attraction in the province.

Flowerpot Island was so named because of the rock formations known as sea stacks that resemble flowerpots. Limestone cliffs were continually pounded by waves and as the water found its way into the cracks in the cliffs, gradually the softer limestone was washed away from the harder top dolomite. This left standing stones in the shape of flowerpots; hence the name of the island.

Accessible by boat, Flowerpot Island is part of the Fathom Five National Marine Park on Lake Huron, a popular tourist attraction in Ontario, Canada. Fathom Five National Marine Park is Canada's first National Marine Conservation area and preserves a legacy of lighthouses as well as 22 shipwrecks; the islands within the Park were all formed of a limestone created in a warm, shallow sea some 400 million years ago, much like the Gulf of Mexico today.
