I love beachcombing and looking for odd pieces of flotsam and jetsam, but seldom find one with such evidence of the erosive (corrosive) power of wind,sea and sun on an old stump which obviously spent way too much time at the mercy of the North Pacific ocean. It finally came ashore on the beach at Goose Spit Park, a community park of the town of Comox on the eastern shore of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. A very popular place for locals and visitors alike, the Spit is a long stretch of land and sand extending out into the water and forming a protected harbour for boats. It’s right at the end of the town so very easily accessed by car, cycle, boat or just hiking.
