 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, “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.

    I love stones, rocks . . .

    We call them ‘varde’, cairns, whatever . . .? I have made many of them back in the mountains in Toscana, I wonder if they are still there? Thanks for sharing, that photo made good memories drift my way 🙂
