What’s in a name?

Driftwood is wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea, lake, or river by the action of winds, tides, waves, or man. It is a form of marine debris or tidewrack. According to Norse mythology, the first humans, Ask and Embla, were formed by Odin out of two pieces of driftwood.

In some waterfront areas, driftwood is a major nuisance.
