Benches: A Good Place To Stop

Today I share one of my favourite stopping places. The bench shown above is in Roche Cove Regional Park near Sooke, B.C., and is nicely situated under one of the largest Arbutus trees I have ever seen. It is off the beaten path, and is a great place to just sit.

I visit this bench often, and access it via a half hour bike ride from home. The ride is along the Galloping Goose Trail, a 'rails to trails' route that winds through tall forests and along the rocky coastline.

The magnificent Arbutus tree provides cool shade on a hot day, and waves greet the rocks below. The view makes this bench a perfect place to stop for a while. No Nature Deficit Disorder here. Just quiet, sun, fresh air, and calm.
