I think that life in general and this space in particular would benefit from more of an outdoor flavor; words and pictures rooted in Nature. Our recent acquisition of a piece of Keats Island, should make this easier. Welcome to Cottage Life. Any piece of Pacific Northwest waterfront is going to include a lot of logs.
A few trees naturally fall into the ocean when they die, but most of the logs that drift up on our beach represent little errors and omissions in the logging industry. Time was, you could make a living scooping these up and selling them back to the foresters; there was even a TV series about it.
Here’s a close-up of another; they become more visually interesting as they spend time alternating between salt water and rocky beaches. I was walking along this one and was struck by the extreme whiteness of the exposed wood. I wonder how long it took?
Photo-geek note: we were on the island for five hours Saturday and I never felt even the slightest temptation to take the wide-angle prime lens off the camera.
