We took the dogs to Jekyll Island's beach today. No news there. We do that all the time, and have been going frequently for the six months we've been here. However, we've noticed more and more of this.
An old cut. This has been going on for awhile.
Even the wedding tree...
I guess someone came along as this was being cut.
For the life of me... what are they thinking? So much driftwood has been cut that, even after only coming here for six months, we can tell when a piece has been cut. Every driftwood piece is unique, a work of art by mother nature. To see them destroyed like this, most likely by just one person who sells driftwood lamps, is disgusting.
Yes, we stopped at the Jekyll Island Welcome Center to report the vandalism. I even started a Facebook page called Stop the Driftwood Poaching on Jekyll Island! Like and share if you're so inclined.
