Whiffen Spit is more of a mood than a place making it hard to describe.
A spit is an overgrown sandbar that extends out into the Ocean. Whiffen Spit has a trail that meanders along it.
For some reason the sight of so much driftwood brings out the building contractors in a lot of people – this whole coastline is filled with driftwood shelters. Crazy wild driftwood, not suitable for construction, there to just look at in awe and maybe sketch. Even the weeds have a scenic quality to them. A tree in the dappled light. In September, there are wild flowers and golden grasses in abundance. January 1, 2000, the first day of the new millennium. It was stormy with this amazing light which I described as dark clouds edged with white gold light, a glowing line of light on the horizon and dark unfriendly waters.
