I walked home though the park on “Friday morning” on my way home from breakfast. There was a skateboard park built at the one end a few years ago and there’s been quite a bit of mixed feelings and opinions about it. On Friday I noticed they had a new bench next to the skatepark.
It wasn’t the usual type of bench, sort of modern looking, not like the wooden benches in the rest of the park. As I drew nearer I saw it had a commemorative plaque on the back for Neil, a 19-year-old who “Loved to Skate”. It reminded me of some graffiti I photographed at the skatepark opposite on a previous visit.
Teenagers have feelings too.
