This stack of rocks was found on Ruby Beach in 2007 when I was working in Seattle and Portland for two weeks. I took an excusion on the Olympic Peninsula and spent some time on the coast. Cairns were not something I knew much about but from time to time on this very rocky beach they would be found such as in this photo. According to rock-on-rock-on.com, “these offer places and moments for reflection at spiritual-environmental retreats. ” I find it rather relaxing to gather a bunch of stones and simply stack them while the waves of the mighty sea move in and out with the ocean breeze.
