One thing I thought about after reading about wood was when I look for driftwood. During the summers, with friends and family, I like taking walks near lakes and such and collecting items like beach glass, driftwood, and different rocks and shells. Although beach glass is my all time favorite and I have so many different pieces, I also love driftwood. It is so soft and does not really feel like how you would expect wood to feel. The colors on them can be really pretty sometimes and I love finding small pieces to bring home. I do not have as much as I do with my beach glass but I do have a few pieces from different lakes and beaches.
