It's a really gorgeous place.
We'd only just arrived when we started making little piles of wood to collect on the way back. While the adults searched out the perfect pieces, the kids all went for a swim.
I made a little art installation on the sand!
There really is some totally beautiful bits of driftwood here. I managed to get enough to make the tree. More about that later, once I've actually made it!
We managed to get so much, that we couldn't carry it back very easily. So we rigged up a sort of stretcher malarky and balanced the wood onto it. It worked really well.
Once the girls had finished swimming they worked their socks off carrying pretty large bits of wood back to the trucks.
Here's our haul. It's going to be exciting seeing what this will be turned into.
I love how the roots are all weathered and silvery.
So, watch this space! In a little while there will be a simple driftwood christmas tree in our house!.
