A Little Boy's Driftwood Fence On Owen Beach, New Years 2014, Tacoma

250.00

It was a cold morning on New Year’s Day in 2014, but it was dry and so we went down to the water on Owen Beach in Point Defiance Park.

There were a few others there. We were all quiet, sorting through the rocks for agates and watching the clouds drift into the hills of Vashon and Maury Islands across the channel.

But a boy was intent on holding back the tide with a line of driftwood stuck down into the gravel along the tide line. He stared out, standing at one end of his fence and back from the edge of water encroaching on his creation.

The swelling water was not stopped of course. It was a childish idea. Even with something bigger, or taller, or made of the very best concrete the water will not be stopped.

It was a childish idea, yes, but it was charming when a child realized it at the beach on a cold New Year’s day.
