The branch that I attend went on a ward outing to a small town called Kandava. On our way there, we stopped by an old manor house that served as a hosptial during wars. It is now a museum.
We also stopped by this place that has a large rock out in the middle of nowhere. Which is apparently a big deal. There aren't a lot of big rocks in Latvia. The kids, and some of the adults climbed it. It is in a pretty meadow and then just behind is a small river that feeds into a bigger river.

Riga is near the Baltic Sea and is a port city. It also has a river, the Dugava running through the city. Unfortunately, the river has had a bunch of stuff dumped in it and so is not very clean. However, the locals do get in it and play and swim. One of the main bridges looks like the strings on a violin.
