My Picks of the Week:

Daily Musings has chosen an unusual location. And Klara catches a couple napping.
Torrie tries to complicate things
We find Jack lazing by the river in Australia
then we move to Africa with a view over the Zambesi

Many thanks for all your links – remember this is the last week for a bench with a view.

My Picks of the Week:

Some that I particularly liked this week are from Jo, who managed to capture a few benches into her weekly walking post. Pauline has a bench on a ship – don’t get many of those on here! Karen (formerly Elizabeth) has benches galore on one of my favourite walks around Sydney. And I particularly like those curvy ones.
If you are a Francophile you will enjoy this view from Klara.

A new entrant this month is soletusknow with a lovely soft photo of a bench practically IN the water. Aletta’s bench is deceptive – don’t get too comfy. And finally Yvette has a tour around Washington DC, with a bench of course.

Thanks to everyone who joined in – more links can be found within the comments so do have a look around.

A beautiful spring view in Edinburgh from Debbie
Gilly takes us to a tranquil spot in Exeter.
