TRAVEL THEME – BENCHES

The travel theme this week on Ailsa’s blog is benches.  I found a few photos that I thought fit the bill, but not many.  I drove around today hoping to find one or two more.  You would think that a person could find an interesting bench or two driving around a few city blocks by the beach, but NO!  I saw benches to rest on while waiting for NJ Transit 501 to take you to the casinos, and benches in gardens that are not meant for sitting, but for decorating. (just not very decorative in my opinion)  Sadly, I found nothing like the beauties I’ve seen on some of the other blogs that have joined in on this interesting challenge.  The price of gas nagged me into heading back home with nothing but a bag or two of groceries that I stopped to pick up along the way.  I thought, while I was out:  spinach, salmon, a few green grapes …

Anyway, there aren’t many shots here, but they’re slightly better than the bus stop benches I saw today.  Enjoy.

I will be on the lookout for more benches, just in case.  In the meantime, click on the photo below to get to Ailsa‘s blog – wheresmybackpack for more on the theme.

  1. Sneaky things, benches, aren’t they? Never there when you want one. That’s what I always find when I’m out walking. That first one is awfully swish! 🙂

    • I don’t think ‘comfort’ was a prerequisite for the challenge. If it was, I’m toast! I like the dream one best myself. And it’s right here in town. This place is just a wonder, ain’t it? 😆

  2. Love the first one most, would be great in my garden.
    Here in some gardens people donate a bench with a little plaque but I have never thought to take a photo, next time.

    • There are lots of photo opportunities that I noticed I’ve passed up. That’s one of the things I enjoy about the challenges. They open my eyes to new ideas. Thanks for stopping by once more :-).

  3. I’m imagining a lovely honeysuckle or rampant clematis growing all over the one outside Smithville Village … plumptious cushions a book and that’ll be me sorted Gemma … 🙂
