Bench series #19

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

Noordhoek Beach Cape Town

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:

Pauline has a couple of bench posts this week. One close to home and several others in ‘The Giant’s House’ in New Zealand. 
Sylvia meanwhile is having a ‘lazy sunny afternoon‘ complete with the Kinks for those of you old enough to remember them.
Cathy  is ‘on the beach‘ with her view of an Hawaiin beach, but sadly gladly Cliff Richard doesn’t join us.
Whilst poor Tgeriatrix has caught the bug and sees benches everywhere she goes with two offerings from the north   coast of Belgium.
Gilly provides us with a bench from which to admire a west country sunset.

And although no beach in sight, Carol has some wonderful tulips to share. But beware there is yet another video clip attached to the post that you may wish to avoid. Just saying…

Thanks to all for showing me your wonderful beaches around the world.

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. This bench overlooks the long beach on the Atlantic side of the Cape Peninsula, at the far end of Chapmans Peak drive. The one that I believe you are thinking of is on the False Bay side – my favourite beach 🙂

  1. Many benches and views to admire here Jude. I am very taken with the blue and white bench in Oostende, which strikes me as very ‘seaside’.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. It is a fabulous beach. I remember taking the kids there when they were small and seeing people horse-riding along this beach. The water is freezing though!
