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. Looks like a favourite spot for a little rest and recreation, Jude. What a beautiful seaside view!

  2. Just want to clarify here… rules, just a bench and a camera, right? A bench at the beach? That’s it, right? 🙂

    1. Right! A bench or even multiple benches if you prefer and a beach, preferably in the same shot, but I’ll allow a creative imagination… 😀 😀

      1. Ah, good. Am glad there is always room for creative imagination or….maybe even….. slight rule bends…….stay tuned. Mwhahhhahahahahah!!!

        1. I understand….peer pressure is a terrible thing and some role models just don’t take their responsibilities to heart. 😦

    1. Gilly you MUST have one – you live so close to the sea!! Anyway you have all month to get out there and find one for me 🙂 Not that there is any pressure you understand 😉
