I am sure we all know those inviting benches , which we find are hard to just walk by. A perfect resting place in between our way . When searching through my files, I realized that I take most of the time a photo from the surroundings rather than from the bench itself. However I managed to find some in my files. Have a seat and may you enjoy!
The first one is a bench at Muncaster Castle, looking out over the valley and the mountains. Muncaster Castle is a privately owned castle overlooking the River Esk, about a mile east of the west-coastal town of Ravenglass in Cumbria, England. As most castles in England it’s beautifully preserved inside and outside.
Ready? Let’s walk to the next one…
It doesn’t get better than this , you might think. Sun ,blue sky and blue sea. Sit down on this bench in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England and dream away……and if you would like to see more of Lyme Regis, there is full post about the town on my blog.
Ready? there is more….
Too cold? Well ok, I do see your point. It might better to take a seat on this bench in summer time, however then the area might be very crowded . “Vlietland (300 hectares) is one of the largest and most attractive water sports, recreation and nature areas in the Netherlands! The heart of Vlietland is formed by three lakes with a total area of approximately 130 hectares”.(text courtesy website Vlietland)
Let’s stroll on……
This one is for all you romantic souls out there . The so-called berceau is to be found around the rose gardens in the gardens of the Castle in Arcen . Such a covered walkway was very popular with castle dwellers in the 18th century. Arcen is a village on the river Maas in the Dutch province of Limburg, The Netherlands.
Sorry … this bench is already taken…
This little feathered friend I found on the bench in Linz am Rhein , Germany. It’s very a lovely village to visit any time of the year. According to Wikipedia is the village the sister city of Marietta, Georgia in the United States, Linz in Austria and Pornic in France.
And last but not least..
My favourite bench on the island of Schiermonnikoog, one of the beautiful islands at the Waddenzee in the North of the Netherlands.
Have a great weekend and take care ❤
