We are on a never ending quest for driftwood to make our custom-made driftwood signs. In the winter, with more storms to wash it ashore and less people to collect it, there's an increased supply but the search is far less enjoyable. No complaints though, even in the bone-chilling cold, I could never tire of any seascape and its smells, sounds and scenery.
So with the scant supply of summer driftwood, I was forced to get creative. Bend the rules a bit. With the gracious help of my husband, I traveled off the beaten path, by boat and paddleboard. Landed sort of near where a no landing sign was posted. And there on a glorious summer day, was driftwood nirvana. We quickly gathered what we could, loaded up our two paddleboards, transferred it to the boat anchored just offshore and kindly waved hello to marine police as we slowly drove away.
Though I'm keeping my spot a secret, I figured I'd share a photo of some of our haul...
Here are some of our most recent designs:
