seat



A moment to rest for both of them after we had just spread my father-in-law's ashes. Hopefully now there is some closure for all. Interestingly, this seat appears to be a memorial for another couple who had passed.

    1. Thank you Victoria. It was a lovely spot; especially under the trees because the temperature was so much cooler than out under the bright sun.
