beach tripods

We humans just can’t help ourselves can we. We just love to make things. If we find some scattered raw materials, we just love to gather them up, re-arrange them and create some sort of order out of the previous dis-order, even if the resulting construction is entirely useless. We like to try to reverse the universes natural tendency towards greater entropy. For whatever reason, there always seems to be a bit of driftwood about on the beaches of the south coast of NSW, and mostly sawn timber rather than tree branches etc. (Or maybe the real question is why is driftwood less common on the beaches further north?). I’ve been to two beaches on the south coast recently, and both had these driftwood tripods on them. Above is Mimosa Rocks National Park, and below is Seven Mile Beach near Nowra.
