Driftwood Inn

Because of how the current runs here, this became a driftwood beach.

When my children were teenagers they camped here. 

There was always plenty of wood for campfires.

the rust red waters catch my eye, Mary. i am sure teenagers still enjoy camping out here.
Care MacADNski: i wonder if they do. Each generation moves around it seems.
Que de bois ! La couleur de l'eau ne la rend pas très attirante.
Care MacADNski: It is lovely and warm, good for swimming.
Beaches like this are always fun to explore.
Care MacADNski: This was great for exploring. I brought a piece home of course.
Some lovely twists and angles... and the redness of the water!
Care MacADNski: This is the same beach as the one with my grandson and the tube.

What a fine set of images!
Care MacADNski: I love the wildness.
Man alive, Mary. It looks a bit treacherous! But how beautiful.
Care MacADNski: Only a small part of a big beach.

It doesn't look very inviting..
Care MacADNski: This is a very small part of a larger beach - the beach with my grandson and tube.

It’s like in my garden where the wind brings a plentiful supply of kindling to get my winter fires going.
Care MacADNski: Here too, if I used wood.

What a great place to hang out, Mary. There is enough drift wood to start a nice fire again and remember "old times"....
Great pictures.
Care MacADNski: It is a lovely beach and this is a small part. All the driftwood is pushed into a pile.
So unlike any beach here

Mungo Jerry....now that's a golden oldie grin
Care MacADNski: This beach has been shown recently - my grandson and tube. This is only a small part.I loved that old song!
I'd like to spend some time at this beach.
Care MacADNski: It is lovely. This is the day my grandson and son's gf were in the tube.
I wonder of any of the local artists have used the driftwood found here for inspiration in their work. I remember the red sand beaches very well. As youngsters during the summer months we used to go to one close to Charlottetown, I believed it was called "Rocky Point". We were given a lot more freedom in those days.
Care MacADNski: Oh yes, driftwood is used here in art; I use it myself. Rocky Point is directly across the water from Ch'town. I believe there was a ferry in days of olde.

Oh yes, plenty of wood, I like the red colour in the water from the red soil in your part of Canada!
Care MacADNski: I went swimming in it today. Really wonderful. Perhaps before bedtime again...

I can remember various summers in my youth, linked to the Mungo's song.
Care MacADNski: Ity's a great little ditty., very popular back then.
Interesting: the red coloured sea!
That would be the ideal place to camp, with fires burning at night.......the good life! smile
Care MacADNski: I think that is why the kids used it. Now they have what you would call caravans.
