Driftwood


Lovely pieces of driftwood from far away places are washing ashore as high surf continues.


Giving people like me something special to photograph.

Unfortunately Mother Nature is also taking this opportunity to clean out her Gulf water -- or perhaps she's just giving us back all our 'lost items'. The beach is heavily littered right now with all types of debris washing in. It's nice to see people trying to help out by picking up plastic bottles, cans, and all sorts of odds and ends.



Extra brownie points and good karma to those who stop to pick up deflated balloons and string, or fishing line. Balloons which get into the Gulf water may be mistaken for jellyfish and ingested by our sea turtles, further endangering an already threatened species.

We learn more every day how to make our environment better, cleaner, and more safe. By sharing what we learn and personally taking small steps forward, we will make a difference!

Wonder what story the driftwood -tree LOL could tell. And that hotel for clams.... Wow now that is a priceless shot. Talk about a message in a bottle.
