Strange Structures in the Woods
I took Olga to Hampstead Heath yesterday for our weekly outing. As usual, she had a great time. On the way, she gets so excited that she's practically a sled dog, dragging me along and panting heavily with the exertion. (Of course, I have no sled.) I can only imagine how great it must feel when I finally take the leash off and she can run free.
Anyway, we've been seeing these odd constructions in the woods for at least the past few weeks. I can't remember when we first saw them.
They're like houses or shanties, except that they're so tiny and open they could never really serve as a shelter. Maybe they're simply someone's sculptures.
Old ones fall apart, new ones appear...
They're a bit like dinosaur skeletons, a big spine with lots of ribs.
Olga decided to check one out but she didn't understand it either. (These photos depict three different structures.)
Maybe they're racks of walking sticks, and we're supposed to take one that fits us?
