Driftwood is a fascination of beachcombers. We like to believe that enchantment is about survival and longevity.

A large log as driftwood conjures up all forms of imaginary scenarios. Where did this log come from? Did it fall in the water from erosion? Did it come from a ship? Did someone have it in tow to build a shelter? Was there a terrible storm that caused the tree to fall off a cliff?

But this could be the lure of driftwood. This log has journeyed a distance and has the scars to show it. It has a story, even if only in our imaginations. It has, even so, found its way to this beach and christened with the stones that show their own tumbled journey.
