Bench series #18

For the month of May I’m looking for benches at the beach

St Ives (2)
St Ives, Cornwall – overlooking Porthgwidden Beach

If you would like to join in with the Bench photo challenge then please take a look at my Bench Series page. No complicated rules, just a bench and a camera required 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it Bench Series: May
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag ‘bench series’ so everyone can find the benches easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new bench theme comes out on the first Sunday in June.

My Picks of the Week:

Tish Farrell, a writer on the edge, introduces me to a bench with a view not too far from me, but where I have never been!
Sherri shows us around a lovely parkland with a bench at the beginning and end of her post.
Tgeriatrix joins in this month with two wonderful views: here and here
Cathy is already on the coast, whilst Elaine looks out over a chilly Firth of Clyde.
The Lucid Gypsy is over at Forde Abbey and another newcomer, Ruth, has a fabulous mysterious view. 

Thanks to everyone who has joined in this month with their bench views 🙂

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. What a gorgeous view Jude. With gale force winds blowing outside here in Somerset right now, looking at your lovely, serene photo makes everything seem calm again while my poor garden is getting hammered 😦 Thanks for linking to my bench post, will be back later with this month’s entry 🙂 xx

    1. Blowing a gale here too at the moment! And not that warm either! I lost several plants whilst away in April due to the warm weather here. Hope yours survive the wind.

      1. Oh dear, sorry to hear that. I think one of my bleeding heart fushias is done for after a quick glance outside for starters…
