A collection of some floats found along the beach with Pratt Cliff as a backdrop.

Where do all these trees come from. Is it the result of logging and are they just washed up on the beaches?

Great shot though. I love the splash of colour

Hi Palmina and thanks.

The trees (or drift logs)collect over the years, most often near the mouths of streams and rivers. Most are washed down rivers when the river cuts into a bank or from the eroding cliff along the coast. Some parts of the coastline are eroding up to a meter a year along this part of the coast.

Thanks for the info Larry That's an awful lot of erosion isn't it?


Larry Workman QIN on March 11, 2008

The erosion is on about three miles of coast along here in a rock formation called Hoh Melange.

There is a beach about 25 miles south of here where 100 feet of beach wash away in some years; it is called Wash-away Beach.

Grüezi May.

I am sorry I did not let anyone know I would be absent for over two weeks. I am fine and will start posting some new photos soon. I'm glad you like the photo enough to add it to your collection.

Merci vilmal.

Grüezi Larry!

I am happy to hear from you, I really was worried and this not only because of the missing Thursday courses ;-)

I look forward seeing your new photos!

Liebi Grüess, May
