Default Identifying Driftwood

I have a couple of driftwoods. After I started sanding it down, I noticed a reddish color appearing. I'm attaching a picture. Does anyone know what type of wood this is?

Welcome to the forum Ipoduke. We encourage members to fill out their profiles because it gives the rest of us information we need to give intelligent and appropriate answers when you need a question answered. For example, if I knew that you lived in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, British Columbia or possibly Alaska I would hazard a guess that the red indicates western Red Cedar. If you are from northern California I would say Redwood. If you are from somewhere other than those then I can't be sure. By the way, it would be nice to be able to call you by your name or a nickname.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
