Bench Series#18: A rough bench in Manuel Antonio

I shouldn’t really be sitting here on my computer, but I just had to post this pic for Jude’s Bench Series, whilst she’s still looking for ‘Benches on the beach’. I found this bench in the Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica. We’d been for a hike through the park, and came down onto this deserted stretch of beach, which as you can see is rather wild and unkempt. Not a sunbathing type of beach, or an ice cream vendor’s paradise.


Right, now that’s done, I must get back to my packing. It’s really difficult deciding which shoes to take and which to leave behind. Decisions, decisions.

  1. I Like the rustic bench, Sylvia. It shows endurance and practically in an off the beaten path way. I can’t help you with packing since I’m a minimalist. When I get back home I’m about ready to throw it away because I wore it “often”. 😊

  2. Just read Jill’s comment and I say ditto! Lovely photo, so peaceful. Hope your packing is going well Sylvia…and the shoe choice isn’t proving too difficult! Have a super time my friend, see you when you get back πŸ™‚ xx

  3. I like beaches but THAT one is spooky. Think I’ll take Costa Rica off the bucket list, actually. But then it’s Monday. Maybe tomorrow C.R. will look better?

  4. Even the philosopher Kirkegaard said that any choice implies anxiety and anguish…………..
    No kidding , I know what you mean. Packing is so tiresome!
    The bench is very well captured , love those leaves on the ground!

  5. Ah thank you Sylvia! I shall expect more from South Africa though πŸ™‚
    And remember, you can always BUY more shoes when you get there if you need to πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
