Photo: Beach Driftwood Ship Creek New Zealand

Driftwood is a common sight along the beach at Ship Creek on the South Island of New Zealand and many pieces have been here for years.

When you stroll the beach of Ship Creek on the South Island of New Zealand you will find many large pieces of driftwood that have come to reside along the shore. Some pieces of driftwood are small, while other are massive but each one is unique in its shape and its story of how it reached the beach along Ship Creek.

Ship Creek is a short distance off the highway but it seems so desolate, yet so amazingly beautiful. As you walk along the beach, it is possible that you may run into another human but chances are a seal or sea lion will be resting on the shoreline.

A small sized river forms on the beach on one side of Ship Creek and ocean waves crash against the New Zealand coastline on the other. Ship Creek was named in 1871 after a foreign piece of a ship washed up at the mouth of the creek with more to follow years later. ... continue below the picture...
