Piling stubs temporarily become sculpture
What is left of these piles are stubs that are covered at high tide. They are waterlogged, then scoured and sanded relentlessly by sand and stone carried by the waves, which sculpted them into the shapes seen here. Piles are stout wooden poles that are driven (hammered) into the ground in order to support a pier. There is no sign of the remains of a pier. Soon, these two stubs also will be gone.
