Bench series #21

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

Hive Beach Burton Bradstock
Hive Beach, Burton Bradstock, West Dorset, England

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:

Debbie heads to La Barceloneta where lots of folk are lying around in the sun.
Pauline finds seclusion with a view.
Tgeriatrix is in Scheveningen where even the clouds are flat.
Aletta is in one of my favourite locations – Hermanus, originally known as Hermanuspietersfontein. See her post to find out why it was changed!
and The Restless One, offers not only benches with beaches, but also pubs with lobster rolls (hopefully). Pop along and join her along the North Yorkshire coast.

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. Delicious sharpness of grass and sea, and of course the wood of the bench. When June arrives, I may get sucked into post processing. You are a temptress to obsession. (I had a look into the future, because Warsaw’s a bit lacking in sea.)

    1. You find these benches all along the Jurassic coast, they are nice to rest your feet and absorb the view, but I prefer one with a backrest for lingering longer. I shall look forward to seeing some benches from Warsaw 😀

  2. Staithes is a lovely English seaside village, but I have to go with the ‘Strandkorb’, which brought back memories of a trip to Warnemunde.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I hope you will write more about your trips abroad Pete, you have been to some very interesting and different places.

  3. I have no doubt that more travel/holiday posts will come Jude. I have already covered Warnemunde in the East Germany post though. x

    1. I must have missed that one. I really need to set aside time to browse through some of my favourite blog sites!

  4. It’s a lovely bench and great view, but like you I miss the backrest. This is more like a table for changing the lenses, I’d say. And a welcome excuse to drop the backpack. 🙂
    Have a lovely Sunday, Jude.
    Warm greetings from Bonn,

    1. Great views from it Tess, but I know you prefer one with a backrest so you wouldn’t sit here for very long.
