Today I saw the most beautiful art on the beach.  Birds and wildlife made out of driftwood.  Over a dozen sculptures.

Here's a bit about the artist. From armed robbery to sculpting birds: A life changed by art

And here is my second favourite sculpture.

I couldn't find a sign for these two geese.  But I suspect that they are also by Paul Lewis.

A closeup shot of the Heron.

There are over a dozen of these sculptures along the spit at Esquimalt Lagoon, near Victoria BC, Canada.
