Here’s another entry for Jude’s February B&W Bench Challenge. This was taken at a picnic spot on Sanibel island, not far from the lighthouse I showed you a short while ago. A few steps through the palm trees, is the beach and the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. A really beautiful place to visit.

I’d even sit there in black and white, Ad! 🙂
Hahaha. Thanks, Jo. 🙂
nice souvenirs… we went there almost 3 years ago, such a pleasant spot! 🙂
Thanks, Mélanie. Nice to know that I followed in your footsteps. 🙂
I think I know exactly where this was taken! We went to Sanibel Island about 10 years ago and absolutely loved it. What a beautiful island.
Thanks, Julianne. Yes, it is a lovely place. I really enjoyed seeing the lighthouse too. 🙂
lovely spot for picnic, Sylvia! 🙂
Thanks, Lola. 🙂
You nailed it – this is a beautiful natural setting.
Thanks, Mary. 🙂
For all the years I lived in Florida, I’ve never been to Sanibel. Everyone seems to love visiting there.
It’s a lovely place, Karen, and many people have holiday homes there.
Looks like a great location … but for whatever reason, the pic deliver a touch of melancholy to me. .. .but I don’t know why.
I think it’s probably because of the B&W treatment, Frank. The original looks more cheerful. 🙂
Great shot,my picnic tables were covered in snow..:-)
Thanks, Ed. I can’t imagine that, as I look out of my window at another sunny, warm day. 🙂
Lovely spot for a picnic Sylvia
Thanks, Pauline. 🙂
Looks awesome – something about the B&W really captures the moment…
Thanks, Marco. I agree that it does add a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. 😀
I’m glad Feb is almost over. All this black & white is depressing.
Hehehe. Sorry, Gunta. I’ll try to stay away from B&W for a while. 🙂 xx
great spot for a picnic!
Thanks, Aletta. 🙂
Looks like a place we’d easily be able to spend a day…
I’m sure you would love a bit of relaxing time there. 🙂
I just stopped for a Pause Break at our local beach. If I had snapped a shot, it would be almost a mirror image of yours . . . except for the buckets left for the water brigade.
Hahaha. Thanks, Nancy. 🙂
Are you taking part in it?
No picnic that day. 🙂
That is an amazing plan!! All the best! 😀
Thank you so much. 🙂
Looks good for sitting around and enjoying the place and cooking out.
Thanks, YC. Yes, it would have been great, but we went to a restaurant instead. 🙂
Looks like a wonderful spot Sylvia. Let’s head straight over there.
Great idea, Sue. I’ll race you there, and I bet I win. 🙂
I think you are a shoe in for the victory. 🙂
Only just though. I bet you’re pretty fast on your bike. 🙂
Not at all Sylvia. I do all of the active things and am typically at the back of the pack. Happy and taking it all in. 🙂
sono molto affascinanti le tue immagini in bianco e nero, Silvya
un grosso bacio
Thanks so much, Annalisa. A big kiss and a hug for you too. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia, a picnic by the beach sounds excellent – what are the buckets for?
I was also wondering that, Jude. the only thing I could think of was that they could be filled with water to put out the fire once the barbecue was done. Of course one could always take them on the beach and make giant sandcastles, or use them for collecting shells. 🙂
Fire bucket sprang to mind, but they seem so BIG for a BBQ. I like your idea of using them for sandcastles 😉
Well you know what they say, “Everything’s bigger in America. ” 🙂
What a great spot for a picnic:)
Yes, it’s very nice there. 🙂
lovely plac.Nice in B&W
Thanks, Marylou. 🙂
Lovely picnic spot!!
Yes it was an ideal spot for a warm summer’s day braai. 🙂
Sounds idyllic Sylvia!
Yes it would certainly be a great place for a barbeque. 🙂
Amazing spot Sylvia, beautiful B&W photo. 🙂
Thanks so much, DellaAnna. 🙂
Benches and breezes. I would like to sit and feel the wind on my face. And then eat! 🙂
Sounds just perfect, Elisa. 🙂
I’ve been there, it is a lovely spot, and nice to think about as it is cold here now 🙂
Thanks, Amy. Glad I brought back warm memories for you. 🙂
Nice bench and picnic spot. 🙂 But where’s the food?
No-one was hungry that day. 🙂
Oh how I wish I were there now, Sylvia. 🙂
Me too, Jill. I’m just about to tackle a pile of ironing. 😦
A bench to enjoy at 🙂
Yes, the perfect spot, Andy. 🙂
