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. I couldn’t be much further from the sea right now but I’ll do my best to break a rule or 2-sorry, I mean post a bench-when I get back x

    1. Have a great time Jo – maybe you’ll find an interesting bench for me whilst you are exploring Poland 🙂

  2. A bench at the beach AND a bench with a view! Double whammy here. 😉 We’re actually meant to see some sun this coming weekend, maybe I can snap a few benches on beaches.

  3. I feel peaceful just looking at your benches Jude. I imagine myself sitting there with a light sea breeze and the sun taking the chill off. Am I close in my imaginings?

    1. Quite close Sue 🙂 Although this was in October it was a very mild and sunny day, though the breeze was a little chilly. In a sheltered spot it was very nice.
