Down By The Riverside
Topic: Field Trip
We went down to the river along a large rock bar the other day. The bar is covered with brush so you cannot see the shoreline of the bar from the embankment where we came in. Imagine our surprise when we walked to the far side and found about 25 little stacks of rocks that someone built over there. As access is difficult here and it is about 4 miles downstream from the local town, we assume a boater or rafter came ashore to do this.
Some were more elaborate than others.
They were interesting to look at and we had to look up online to see if they are meant to represent something or what other purpose they have. They are apparently just built for the satisfaction of having done it and for the entertainment of people who discover them.
Actually, we WERE entertained by them. I added a couple of small rocks to one as we were leaving.
Then, it started to rain a bit so we headed back. I found more beauty in the flowers that were struggling to survive on this rocky ground.
"Thanks on the great job on the outdoor decorations", to God and whoever the other guy was.
