Bench series #30

For the month of July I’m looking for a bench with ‘Unusual Details’ 

(This month I want to see photos of a bench which is different to the norm. It may be the shape, style, length, height, colour, material or even location that attracts your attention)

Upturned ‘boat’ benches are so fascinating and so practical as the boat provides shelter from the sun or rain – these are two that I have found in different parts of the country. Have you seen a ‘boat’ bench? If so perhaps you’d like to share it with me.

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: July
  • 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 August.

This is the last week for unusual benches so please get your entries in soon!

My Picks of the Week:

Violetsky has these happy feet and snuggly hands to show us.
Debbbie finds a map in the countryside around St Albans.
Pauline (or PP as I often call her) has two lovely benches this month – one with the lovely Jack attached and another for ‘tiny bottoms‘. Thank you Pauline xx
Dailymusings has a wonderful butterfly bench and darling Gilly is riding with cherubs 

As always there are so many delightful benches to view, I hope you will check out the other links within the comment section.

I now live back in the UK, but spent several years travelling the world and then living in South Africa. I look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Lovely boat benches images, Jude. Clever! Makes me think with joy about the boat sheds on the holy island of Lindisfarne. 🙂

    1. Isn’t it? I should have got closer but I needed to get back to collect the grandchildren from school so didn’t hang around for long.

  2. What a dignified ending for a boat – and it’s providing the shelter from wind ad weather it never did when it was alive! Better than rotting away. I’ve never seen such a repurposing.
