At The Beach..Inukshuk

IMG_8836-1
As one travels across the Canadian Arctic, one will see piles of rock slabs and stone built to resemble the shape of a person with arms stretching out. These stone structures put up by Inuit are known as inukshuk (pronounced 'in-ook-shook'). In the Inuit language Inuktitut, inukshuk means "likeness of a person" or "in the image of man". The inukshuk is a well known symbol in the Canadian north.
Picnic yesterday at the beach in Peachland. Found this Inukshuk on the beach already made up for me to take a photo.
When we got home at about 7:30 pm and it was still 89 degress!!!
This is one hot summer, so glad we live close to the water. Jim, Cookie and I all went for a swim. The water was so warm.
