At the aWay station two dogs helped out by whittling alongside us arguably more dexterous whittlers and created quite interesting works – at least to me. Clearly dogs are a different species – or maybe I would have come up with something similar if I was limited to my sharpened canines.
In my beach wanderings of late I’ve been collecting naturally occurring whittles. They are just driftwood pieces, but somehow they look as if they were more carefully shaped than by the random processes of water, wind, sand, sun,
and toredo worm!
