Absent companions (Blue)

I had lost all feeling in my fingers but I didn't care. I was on my scooter, the crisp air washing over my face as I admired the stunning ocean and mountain views along Victoria's waterfront Beach Drive. Overhead the sky was mostly clear and a late afternoon sun was blazing over the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

I was putting a new point-and-shoot camera -- a gift from my wife -- through the paces. Passing a small turnoff I saw these two blue chairs perched on Kitty Islet overlooking the waterfront. Too intriguing not to investigate and take a photo or two...

After I took my photos I noticed that one had a plaque on it (below). Thanks to Google I tracked down the tale of Blue For You.

BTW The island in the background above is Trial Island.
