Sharing the Same Passion: A fellow Sea Glass Hunter & His Beautiful Finds

Fun Fact:
 
Inukshuk ~ Meaning:'In the likeness of a human','someone was here' and 'you are on the right path'. Inukshuks are man-made landmarks of stone used by the peoples of the Arctic region of North America to point out the right directions along highways, lakes and in the wilderness. The Inukshuks guided people across the frozen tundra and helped them to handle the different hardships that they encountered there.
An inukshuk can be small or large, a single rock or several rocks balanced on top of each other, round boulders or flat. They are built from whatever stones that are at hand and often sculptured to look like a human. Each one is unique. The arrangement of stones indicates the purpose of the marker. The directions of arms or legs could indicate the direction of an open channel for navigation, or a valley for passage through the mountains. An inukshuk without arms, or with antlers affixed to it, would act as a marker for a cache of food.
If you are curious of how an inukshuk looks like then chech them out on 'google images'.

Twelve steps in to your backyard
through tall green grass, and into the world
Ain't it feelin right
Ain't it feelin nice
in your own backyard
in your own backyard

Through dirty winding road, around your feet
that carries me along
and into the beat
Didn't need to go so far 
to find what you were thirsting for 
Didn't need to go so far
to find what you were looking for
Because it was always beside
just right behind
right of your hand
you just didn't know
it was in your own backyard

Twelve steps in to your backyard
Just twelve steps in to your backyard
Twelve steps in to your backyard
Twelve steps in to your backyard
Twelve steps in to your backyard
Twelve steps in to your backyard
