'For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.   I travel for travel's sake.   The great affair is to move.'

While driftwood is a form of marine debris, or tidewrack, is can also be quite beautiful and even mysterious. The salinity of the ocean water tends to preserve the trees for many decades - if not longer. Note that the water appears brown(ish) at Jekyll Island because of churned-up sediment and tannin washed offshore from the myriad swamps and marshes of coastal Georgia.
