  • A Driftwood Sculpture Competition in Hokitika - New Zealand
 

We wish we had heard about the driftwood sculpture competition on the beach at Hokitika, but we rolled into town a few days too late. Still, many of the remants of the sculptures were still standing despite days of wind and rain. Sadly, others were in ruins, but it created an interesting post-apocholyptic atmosphere as we wantered the beach in the setting sunlight. We had fun trying to deduce the original sculptures from the ruins, but even more fun admiring those structures that were still standing. Too bad we missed the competition's finest hours.
