Is this a tombolo?

Recommended Posts

This is called a "causeway" by the local government. The "causeway" is natural, not man-made. It consists of stones and is pretty substantial when Lake Michigan is low.


Right now it is mostly underwater because Lake Michigan is high.


What I'm wondering is

  1. Is the causeway a tombolo even though it is made of rock?

  2. Is Cana Island a tied island, a tidal island, or both? (Lake Michigan doesn't have tides, but the lake gets alternatively deep and shallow over the course of so many years.)

For reference
