We have spent the last 5 days in at Grandma Peggy and Howard's cabin in Fort Bragg, CA.
Driftwood surrounds the property and litters the beaches.

Today we are sad to leave.

Mano is our creative host for the drawing challenge this week.

Dear Rachel,
your collection of driftwood is very impressing! Love it!
Those forms... statures thats seems to have a soul.
Have you seen the 'Endeavour' in L.A. today?

Love Ariane.

What a great variety of shapes you have shown us. I love the curved one that looks like a length of ribbon once tied into a bow but now slightly unravelling.
And yes I would imagine it is hard to leave this spot with the wonderful driftwood offering. It's nice to think of your family visit even though is is sad to have to end it. Norma, x
