Offloading My Spare Benches for Cee’s FFC: Outdoor Seating

“When one door closes, another opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.” ~Alexander Graham Bell

My blog friend Jude had a long-running bench challenge last year which came to an end before I’d used up all the bench photos on my desktop. Oh horrors!……What to do with with the overflow?…….No worries…..Cee comes to the rescue with her ‘Outdoor seating’ Fun Foto Challenge. Yay! 🙂

Here are the benches which I’ve had  lurking around for months.

A couple of non too comfortable looking concrete benches in San Pedro Belize.


Another Belizian concrete bench, but this one has no backrest, and could do with a bit of weeding around it.


This moss-covered wooden bench in Manuel Antonio National Park Costa Rica even has a foot rest.


Something or someone must have  taken a chunk out of this poor old bench.


Yet another wet and slimy bench along the route. There was really nothing that invited us to sit down for a rest, so we kept slithering along the slippery path.


Now for something completely different. A bench with a pleasant view at the Edison Ford Botanical Gardens in Fort Myers here in Florida.


Zooming off to South Africa and a bench at the Piggly Wiggly Country Village where my sister and I went for a wander around the artists’ centre and a tasty lunch last September.


Here’s a bench I see very often these days when we visit our local Sherwin Williams Paint Store.


Last but not least, our son Jeff found a rather interesting outdoor seat at the Victoria Falls Safari Park in Zimbabwe.


Thanks Cee for helping me to clear some of my photos from my desktop. To see more examples of ‘Outdoor Seating’ pop over to Cee’s FFC

  3. An eclectic mix, for sure, and looking at that lot I think a good motto would be ‘always carry a cushion’. Some great shots though, Ad. I keep finding them too 🙂

  4. Those are so cool benches you have here. I like them all. I would not call the last one a bench though and I would think hard to sit on 🙂

    Now, I am more wondering about psych of those who like to take pictures of benches..are they normal 🙂

  5. Hahaha… you are a clever soul Sylvia! I have to confess I still have a few benches lurking 😉 Can’t say any of those first ones entice me for a sit down though.

  6. Hi Sylvia, I have a chapter in my new book about using blog challenges to tell stories. You are the best person in the world who does this with a passion. May I copy one of your posts into the book. Each chapter has a post with comments, and I think using one of yours for this chapter would be awesome. 🙂

  7. I’ve always admired “your”benches and I’m glad you posted further ones…
    Beautiful , by the way!
    (I’ll go and see if there’s one left in my photo gallery , too….)
