A stone collected and brought home from a holiday, serves as a wonderful reminder of that time and place. Even stones from day trips and local adventures to forests and beaches, can turn up specimens worthy of being pocketed and brought home. It’s a nice idea for children, who can line them up and stack them along their windowsill, while thinking back on their adventures.
I’ll be looking for some new stones to add to my collection, as we head off on a road trip to Hogwarts. I’m quite possibly more excited than my kids, and can’t wait to visit the Leaky Cauldron, and enjoy a nice cold glass of Butterbeer. Cheers and happy summer to all of you!
