Driftwood Art

The massive accumulation of driftwood at Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island, BC, is fascinating. But even better is all the driftwood art made by campers at the nearby campground.

The beachfront campsites all have their own unique art. In one campsite a long time seasonal resident made this gorgeous carving.

Our own campsite had my favourite piece. A clock with no hands – you’re on island time!

This little gate was also in our campground. The gate is always open and each piece was painted by a different person or group who also signed their names. Next time I come here I will remember to bring some paint so I can leave my own contribution.

All the kids enjoyed swimming out to this driftwood raft which was high and dry at low tide.

Our beachfront campsite on Quadra Island is among my handfull of favourite camping locations of all the places we have been in North America. I could easily spend a summer here on island time.

    Hi Anne, great photos – and also wanted to tell you the earlier ones you did of the stones along Rebecca Spit are wonderful! We were there in late August, perhaps around the same time as you, and my eye was also drawn by both the stones and the driftwood creations – tthough I didn’t get close enough to the latter to see the intriguing details you’ve photographed (we paddled by in our kayaks but didn’t go ashore).

      Hi Laurie, Oh I can’t believe we might have been there at the same time!! We were there in the last week of August. Were you in one of those gorgeous boats anchored in the bay that we were admiring from shore? That would be so funny. We were looking at a trawler that was anchored there thinking “we could live on that”! Thank you very much for your comments on the driftwood art. It was an awesome campground if you ever need to go ashore!

      Thank you so much Toad! I know it has been really hectic for me too even though this is supposed to be a break from travelling. It’s hard to put a year’s worth of family and friends into four months. I’m really glad you enjoyed the images from Rebecca Spit. I highly recommend it if you and Mrs. Toad ever get a chance to get away. It’s a great spot and I would love to see what kind of images you make there.
