Here is an interesting rock, they are called kettles by the natives. These large rocks are different, they range in size, why they are called kettles I am not sure. This shot was taken on the native reserve of Kettle point, along lake Huron. I know that over the years these large round rocks which weigh many hundreds of pounds have found their way on different front lawns in the area. These rocks are protected from people taking them.

Those are neat. They make me think of those big round spheres, they find all over the jungle, and everywhere(where?), Costa Rico? South America somewhere?
I'm too tired to google it, surely someone will know and say something.

Looks like a great place to sit and relax. Nice pic. Could be that the Native American thought that the kettles have special powers/effects??.

I don't really know, the rocks are kind of neat, the one pic looks like a pearl in the lake bed?
