Mostly a bunch of rocks and water.

A cabin

And a half frozen lake, Katterjärvi, which was the days destination.

The other side is Norway.

After some lunch at the cabin (outside on the deck, as it was not open), I took a leisurely walk back to the lodge for a nap, a sauna and dinner at the local cafe.

I noticed this little rockery at the Uppsala Botanical Gardens the other day.

This use of found objects from nature is one of my favorite kinds of art.
