Icy waters from Labrador veering south meet the warmer gulf stream from the United States,churning the ocean and causing strange currents with damp, chilling fogs. Shifting sands extend outward under the water, making it difficult for mariners to chart a course; thus hundreds of ships have run aground and been wrecked,making Sable Island a true "graveyard of the Atlantic." See all of Jean Khanbegian's work about Sable Island here.
