Driftwood log

This is a huge driftwood log that washed up on Playa Langosta near our condo.  The ocean surge that I showed yesterday carried with it what had at one time been a large tree trunk that had been floating in the ocean.  The ocean receded and left this large log on the beach as a souvenir, only to be washed away again.

Don't worry about the loss of tree.  Costa Rica planed 7 million new trees last year as part of its reforestation efforts to combat global warming and become the world's first carbon-neutral nation, a goal for 2021.

Wow - that's a piece of driftwood! I wonder if it could be made into different things by a clever wood worker?

On Nova Science Now last night they calculated that we need seven trees to offset the carbon dioxide output of each person. I think we had all better start planting.

A big piece of drift wood. Glad you caught it while it was there.

I love the look and shape of driftwood. This is a huge one.

That has to be the biggest piece of driftwood I've ever seen but you folks have probobly seen more than your share of wood and other things drift up on shore. The beach is so beautiful.
