Saturday Photo Hunt = Wooden



Photo Hunter

What is it, you ask? I don't know. I would think just a piece of driftwood with a piece of rope tied to it! Found this on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

The sea and sand can carve some interesting shapes in driftwood, it is kind of odd to have a rope in it though. ec

Great shape to that piece of wood, and it looks perfect in the sand with the water rippling around it.

Your photo brings back childhood memories. I grew up by the beach and driftwoods were common things you see washed up on shore. Thanks for the love on my first PhotoHunt entry!

Heather said...

There's something very special about driftwood that's unlike any other wood I think. It takes on some wonderful shapes.

Carin said...

Nice entry for the photo hunt theme!

Dawn said...

That is a cool piece of wood. It reminds me of those tables and clocks people make with driftwood.

Mary said...

This shot is very interesting. I wonder why the rope was tied to the driftwood? Child's play? Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,
Mary

Sandy C. said...

Gandalf & Grayson said...

Ooh, I love driftwood. My dad used to have a very unusual piece downstairs on the bar. I must ask hime whatever became of it! We're originally from the New England south shore area. My parents walked the beaches of Cape Cod a zillion times! Thanks for this very unique photo.

That is awesome. One of the coolest planters I have ever seen was a piece of driftwood with random cacti in it!

Thanks for visiting my first PhotoHunt.

Patricia said...

I think it also resembles a large arrowhead. Very interesting subject, Ancient One! Thanks for stopping by the creek earlier. I do hope you will come back again soon. Blessings on your weekend!

Katney said...

I've seen some interesting driftwood pieces today. This is the first one with a rope.

ian said...

hmm i believe there's a ship attached to that piece of wood, but the seas and the wood eroded it to its current state... i wonder what mysteries that slab holds...

eph2810 said...

Perfect photo for this week's hunt. Just wondering how the rope got there...

Thank you for sharing - have a blessed Sunday.

MarmiteToasty said...

I think its a part of some Gallows from 1674 with the noose still attacted, lobbed into the see when the french done away with hangings... :) - nah not really..... I LOVE finding driftwood and trying to make out what it could be.....

Found your blob via 'Gathering Around The Table'..... its nice here :)

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...
