Wordless Wednesday - A new best friend?

Someone we met in the park!
"Lining both sides of Plaza Héroes de Cavite is a promenade with wooden benches. One of them is occupied by this forlorn fellow with a duffle bag at his feet. Go ahead … sit next to him, drape your arm over his shoulder and console the young man. He represents an Army soldier from the Infantry Regiment ‘España 18’ who fought during the Spanish-American War. The sculpture was created by Fernando Sáenz de Elorrieta. Nearby is another full-size bronze titled Replacement Navy Sailor."



 


I am joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the blog hop.

We love finding things like that sitting on benches. Scheels sports stores have such people that are famous on benches outside their stores.
