Longitude and Latitude, Ocean Park

Our salvage journey started several years ago when my husband took a salvaged Douglas Fir rafter beam and  carved a mantel by hand.  He installed it where we had a hideous 1970s pink granite block fireplace.  We surrounded the  mantel with river rock, inspired by the look of the bar fireplace at Skamania Lodge, one of our favorite places.  

I decided to do a little artwork for my husband as a birthday gift.  I drew the longitude and latitude of Ocean Park in pen and pencil.  Given the mantel is the center of our home and world, I thought this directional piece needed to be placed right there- at the heart of our universe.   And yes, the piece of driftwood next to the drawing is shaped exactly like a human heart.
