castlecliff beach, whanganui

We drove down to Whanganui on Sunday and visited Castlecliff Beach. It was a bit nippy and
very few people were around but the scenery was mysterious and magical.




It amazing to think that all this driftwood had been washed down the Whanganui River
and then washed up on the beach. This uprooted tree was about 90 feet long!

So fascinating, what's all washed up the shore! I think, if I would life somewhere at the sea, I would collect soo many things, I love this washed look of the wood which has been in the water for a while! All the best and thank you, Miuh

Hello Brave One, this looks like the intro of a scary movie. Had the same feeling as when the movie of Macbeth (Shakespeare) began - full of anticipation! And you were the first one to be able to link (after the drama with the Linky this weekend!) - Shanks for sharing!

Wow! I've never seen more than a small piece of driftwood on the shore in California where I live. This is amazing!

It's always interesting what the tide brings in. The long tree trunk is unusual. I would have thought that it would be in smaller pieces by the time it reached the beach.

There's a wild beauty in the disorder shown in these photos, Betty. Well captured!
