Gold Stone update and Finnish legend
There are now 29 gold stones out there in Wales, England and Finland. Each stone is marked with:
JAS 2015/2014 and its number 1-29.
If you find one take a photo of you with it showing its number and email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a prize.
The one above follows a Finish legend:
Finnish legend has it that on Jaakko's naming day, 25th July, Jaakko throws his stone into the water and swimmers start to feel the Autumn chill.
I followed this tradition and threw a stone in the Finnish waters yesterday, April 13th, 2015. I had to do it because I am flying home from Kimito on Saturday, so its a little early and I hope I have'nt ruined it for the swimmers......
