Robby and I went to the 3rd Annual Rock Building Event in the Patapsco River. I didn’t know what rock building was, but considering my love of rocks, this was definitely something that I had to check out!
In my novel, Both Sides, the main theme of the adventure is, “Follow the Stones.”
The water spirits must have been jealous because I had an unplanned dip in the river up to my neck less than a minute after entering the river, but it was refreshing so I continued on to my rock building.
My creation was a rock pyramid. The inspiration came from my travels to the Giza pyramids in Egypt and the Chichen Itza pyramids in Mexico.
Robby and I had a great time and after the rock building we spent the rest of the day touring Main Street in Ellicott City.
