When you stroll the beach at Ship Creek on the South Island of New Zealand you will find many fascinating pieces of driftwood.

It is amazing that driftwood this large can float throughout the waters and end its journey washed up along the sandy beach for one to marvel over. Ship Creek beach on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand is home to hundreds of pieces of driftwood in a variety of sizes and shapes.
