Bench of the Week (23)




Sunset is a lovely time to sit and view nature as the day winds down at English Bay in Vancouver, B.C.

Please visit RuneE of Visual Norway for other participants. RuneE began this informal meme of bench of the week.

You have found a real lover's spot this time! There is really no more to be said - it would destroy the occasion :-)

I always keep an eye open for pictures like this, but have ony captured a few. This is really a classic. A wonderful picture and it speaks volumes.

Charles, getting cozy with a significant other tends to get things comfy and warm.
