Bench series #46

For the month of November I’m looking for a bench with either a message OR an Autumnal theme

(any kind of writing will do, it could be a message, a plaque, a dedication or even a map)

My Spirit will be like a bird soaring in the sky over the sea at the Lizard

In Memory of  Lorna Maston 1931 – 2012 (Lizard Cornwall)

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: November
  • 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 December.

My Picks of the Week:

It seems appropriate that benches with messages in memory of the wars were posted last week: Cee , Sylvia and Ruth have dedications to service-men and women the world over.
On a lighter note Kaz has a message from someone who is very much alive and Anabel has found the smallest departure lounge in the world!
Daily Musings found a pretty carved bench with a difference whilst newcomer Julie, and old-timer, Dawn (I mean that in the nicest way) have benches with quotes. Dawn even manages to get hers with an autumnal feel! I really need to get my memorial bench sorted!

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

  1. A great selection from your team of bench-finders, Jude. The carved fish are very different, and the military memorial benches are nice tributes. I never want to sit on the benches where I have to actually sit on the memorial though, if you get my drift.
    Regards as always, Pete. x

    1. I suppose that is one good thing about benches with memorials, many more people will see them and think/wonder, even if only fleetingly, about the person. And I don’t remember that crash either.

  2. Got here at last! Been a bit full on and I’ve not been long back from my last walk of the year with my English walking friends. I seem to be accumulating more and more bench shots. Wonder whose fault that is? Shall have to blast you with them next month when ‘anything goes’. 🙂 Lovely benches in sad times, Jude.

  3. for some reason, you are not coming to my email, I tried to find you in my reader, and you weren’t there…I followed you again…to see what’s what. Nice bench!
