Driftwood King and Kid

It’s hard to believe we first blogged about driftwood back in September of 2011. We just got back from a trip to Mendocino, so we’ve added a few new pics to the old post including our driftwood kid. 

Mendocino rocks in so many ways, but its creative uses of driftwood push it over the edge to being super awesome. We love driftwood. When you live next to the beach you can get away with any sort of driftwood sculpture. Does anyone else see two scantily clad dancers frolicking on the right hand side of this picture?

It’s a super cool gigantoid driftwood horse in front of the Mendocino Art Center! There were lots of cool, reasonably priced sculptures everywhere in the cute garden.

When you live next to the ocean why not go crazy with driftwood? I’ve always wondered about the legalities of taking driftwood from California beaches, and after doing a wee bit of googling it looks like each place is unique. Quite a few places seem to encourage it. I even saw a post about getting a permit for carrying away as much as
possible from a state park. 

The Aloes are starting to put on their winter show and the aeoniums are waking up. Love the big chunk of driftwood.
