Calgary Alberta Canada is one of my favourite places in North America
I thought I’d show you some of the benches that caught my eye during our stay there last October
There were lots of them so I’ve picked out some of the stunners (well in my eyes)
As it is nearly Remembrance Day – November 11th
heres a very special bench from a special park in Calgary
This stunning carved bench is in Central Memorial Park
May we live as nobly as they died
Now don’t you think this is a picture of ingenuity and simplicity
I’m not sure who placed it there but you can see weary commuters sqatting there waiting for the bus
Nice and dry up off the concrete (and snow) in more comfort than the man further down the bus queue

There were several of these very fanciful lounge benches in a place called Olympic Plaza
Its where all the medal presentations took place for the 1988 Winter Olympics but now its a fabulous water park – a little haven in the middle of a busy city
Very basic but also very ‘modern’ looking
Space for more than one and flowers on the table as well lol
Outside what I think was a downtown – wonder if any deals are done there

And to finish off heres another with a military theme
These were in the grounds of the Aereo Space Museum
The flags are part of a memorial to pilots who were trained in Canada during WW2
They are all very normal and serve a purpose yet they are all very different
