The Pitt-Addington Marsh Wildlife Management Area contains 2972 hectares (7344 acres) which is managed by the B.C. Ministry of Environment. Access to the Addington side of the marsh can be accessed via northeast Coquitlam. For information about the marsh see Ducks Unlimited.

RuneE of Visual Norway began this informal meme on Bench of the Week for Fridays. He has a unique bench up with a decorative design.
Ackworth Born has a bench with geese and ducks.
PERBS has a bench up at the Love of Benches.

Another nice place for a nap.

This one is superb, Barbara. I love the snow-capped mountains in the background. I could sit here for a long, long time, just drinking in the scenery.

A bench in a 7000-acre marsh wildlife management area! I'd love to sit a spell there.

HBFG said...

Wow, that seems to be one magical and peaceful place to sit and just BE. :))

Kia ora Barbara,
Now THAT is a bench with a view. My favourite thus far, of course each and every one in your bench series has its own charms and character, but this one really does it for me Rave on!
Aroha,

RuneE said...

You have an impressive view from your bench. A place where one could sit for hours and just watch, and watch, and...

Charles, it would be a relaxing enough place for a nap, though I would wonder about the mosquitoes.

Teresa, it is a very pleasant view.

Dina, the nice thing about the area is there would be more wildlife than humans.

Barbara Martin said...

HBFG, I agree with you.

Barrie, a kindred spirit.

Barbara Martin said...

Robb, I can you plotting where you would go on your next hike...perhaps to Garbaldi Provincial Park where there are rugged crags to explore.

Ackworth, it spoke to me too.

RuneE, there would be numerous camera angles for all types of shots.

Barbara Martin said...

Cloudia, the ocean currents are colder here.
