There is always driftwood on Playa Barqueta in Chiriqui Province, sometimes much more than at other times; sometimes just little twigs and branches that have washed up on the black sands and other times huge trunks and root balls. Over the years, some driftwood has been buried, some has moved hundreds of yards up and down the beach, rolling with the ebb and flow of the tide, and some has been picked up by beach combers. This particular log has rolled and changed position and seems to be on its way to the burial stage. While strolling along the water’s edge one late afternoon, the waves pounding and splashing up and over the driftwood, I captured the action. Splash!
