After washing up on shore, driftwood usually comes to rest on the sand after the tides recede. Yesterday after high tide I found several pieces wedged between boulders. Not significant other than I never thought of a crevice as a collection point for driftwood. I took a photo and walked away. No more to the story.
Driftwood and ocean debris were fashioned into a message yesterday at Carmel River State Beach. This area is often used for wedding ceremonies.
The last few weeks have been good ones for driftwood fans. At this time of year, the beaches in Carmel are packed with ocean smooth wood. My favorite place is at the bottom of a steep cliff where a patch of sand is the resting place for high tide deposits.
