This unique landscape continued on. Giant logs everywhere! As far as the eye could see. We’d heard there was “a bit of drift wood down the beach” but this is ridiculous! How come this place hasn’t got an amazing name like ‘Death Beach’, or ‘Log Cemetery’? It wasn’t even mentioned. A pretty dramatic landscape. I’m quite surprised it hasn’t been used in a movie yet. Well worth a visit just for the spectacle, if not the almost gothic atmosphere.
Yeah to me driftwood is smallish and fairly manageable in size, of the ‘nail it to your wall for decoration persuasion’, not whole blooming tree trunks! Quite amazed by the amount of timber washed down river (Whanganui being the most likely culprit) and onto this beach, I name thee – Satan’s Sawmill!
