I'm always intrigued by people sitting on benches; wonder why they're there, what are they thinking. In this case they could be just resting after a cycle ride, waiting for the ferry to the Purbecks, or just admiring the view.

Could be me and the wife sat there! Very English seaside postcard look; right down to the typeface. Smashing.

Ah! That's a nice shot! Good candid, well spotted! They're looking at a beautiful scene whilst they wait for the blood pressure to return to normal! (Or am I judging them by my own standards?!!) Smile

Well caught! Good shot.
