I love it when people do things like this ...

I walk beside the River Taff most days. Today I was delighted to see that someone had built a cairn in the middle of the river!

"A cairn (carn in Irish, carnedd in Welsh, càrn in Scots Gaelic) is a human-made pile of stones, often in conical form. They are usually found in uplands, on moorland, on mountaintops, or near waterways ... Similar structures can be found in water."

It's a frequent complaint that there is too little funding for public art, but this is a great example of someone just getting on and doing something interesting and pleasing.

You should come to Latvia, they love making those things. They also make signs for their land out of wood from their land, often those trees that are a peculiar shape.
So nice!
Joanna ... sounds interesting ... maybe send some pics?

Jo ... good innit?
