The Art of Waiting

The Art of Waiting
I'm not very good at waiting, but it is something we all have to do every now and then. So while I waited for my friends to show up at the place that we had chosen for coffee today, at my favorite beach, Årsta Havsbad, I jumped on the bike again and headed down to the port that will take visitors to the archipelago. No ferry there when I arrived, but I noticed a few people that were waiting for the ferry, and I like to think that the people that stacked these stones and that bone so nicely did that while waiting for the ferry.

There is a guy here who erects structures like that at a spot on the Ottawa River each spring. They generally stay in place through the fall.

A bonafide cairn. (Sorry about that, I can't stop myself). But what a nice shot. I've gotten many nice shots myself while waiting for trains and such.

Occasionally I see stacked rocks on the beaches here. at least you had your camera to pass the time waiting.

Cairns are surprisingly common, found in all sorts of unexpected places. I don't understand why people are drawn to create them.
