Moonstone Beach is a Rhode Island beach that tends to be less occupied for a variety of reasons. The primary reason is that it is often sectioned off to allow for the nesting of the Piping Plover.
A result of this allowing for nesting is that Moonstone tends to be a trifle more pristine. Even so, things will wash ashore, it is the way of life at the beach. In this case, a section of line, hawse, has come ashore as parted from a ship or tug and barge. Given the currents, this hawse might have drifted in from Europe or the middle Atlantic.
Some creative soul took the opportunity in that which washed ashore. They decided to show their love for the beach in an impromptu artwork. So we, in kind, have preserved that piece to pass along to the world. Because we too love the beach.
