Overlooking the Marina on a rainy day — Pull Up a Seat #47 and PPAC #23

Hi all 😃 My entry for Xingfumamas Pull Up a Seat Challenge. There’s also a sculpture by the seat, so this is also my entry for PPAC, hosted this week by Marsha. There is no explanation for the sculpture; to me though it looks like the ruins of a church, particularly with the stained glass inserts 😃
