Photo #295

I was stuck without a photo idea for today, and then I remembered these photos I took two days ago: The Homecoming statue in Victoria's Inner Harbour...

This was commissioned for the Canadian Navy's Centennial Celebration last year. Along the bottom are the names and crests of all of the current ships in the Pacific Fleet, based just outside of Victoria in Esquimalt.
I think the thing I like most about this statue is that the returning sailor has a teddy bear in his bag for his daughter. That's a nice touch by the artist...
