Usage examples of corks.

Ginny was kneeling amid a pile of abandoned Butterbeer corks, watching the conversation with her mouth slightly open.

Her head kept falling away before the wind, threatening to snarl the net in her own rudder, but slowly the line of bobbing corks spread from the mangroves on one side towards the far bank, while in grim concentration Sebastian and a group led by Mohammed paid the net out over the stern.

For the line of corks was suddenly plucked below the surface, leaving the small disturbance of ripples where each had stood.

Sebastian turned quickly and saw the black face and the red face beside the floating sack of corks a hundred yards away.

I know I had to beg and borrow corks from all the neighbors before I had enough.

He even recalled where he got certain oddly-shaped corks from the neighbors.
