Thinking back.

Carter, who I wrote about in yesterday's post, attended the 2008 Canadian dry stone festival with his parents when he was just a kid.
I thought a few pics of that event might be fun to post today.

Children of all ages like stones

Building a house with only stones is like watching a fairy tale.

Plenty of people and excitement as the scaffolding is taken down.

This is one of the structures built at the children's event.

The roof was completed in three days.

I suspect there are more 'kids' like Carter who were there that weekend who one day will also find an opportunity to have 20 tons of stone delivered to their back yard to play with.


  1. What is that scaffolding? Is it a house or what?

  2. The scaffolding was erected for spectators to be able to see the guest wallers completing the roof of the hut during the festival
