Bench at Mt. Rainier Visitors Center

CLICK to enlarge to see the bench under the windows.

We ate our Gazpacho (cold soup), sandwich and drink here for lunch before we proceeded to yet another area to hike another trail. There were many long benches all around the visitors center just like this one. Unfortunately, I got the dreaded sun spots in this photo but that meant we also had good weather for hiking that day, unlike the night to come when rains would drench our campground.

from Katney's Files

Recently, Katney shared this one with me. It must have been such a beautiful bench at one time. Now it is in a garden nursery with dirt dumped on it and flowers growing from that. I suppose it is better than tossing it out. I wonder what it was used for or where it was placed in its heyday?

Bench of online friend's journies

For a beautiful bench, go here: Linda She was generous to share it with us all.

After you enjoy the beauty of the bench from that angle, look below it and see the colored bricks!

Painted Flowers and Leaves Bench

At first, I thought this bench had blue and green dots painted on it but when I enlarged it, it shows painted blue flowers with green leaves and vines. The cement legs are also kinda unique. It was in a yard and I didn't have closer access to it so I don't know anymore about it.

Bench Found by Paul Nichols

These bench pics courtesy of Paul Nichols:
He tells me:
About it: I spied it while I was out walking in a neighborhood I'd never visited.
As you can see in the 1st pic, it is only a few feet from thepublic sidewalk,
yet there was no bus stop or anything like that.
Quite alonely street, in fact.
It fit in with a home's back yard but was about 200feet from the house.
I couldn't justify taking pictures from a distance
because of telephone/light poles and street signs.
It is the round arm rests that really captured my attention in the first place.
Thanks for the pics Paul!!!

sit and take in the wildlife.

I saw my first Pileated Woodpecker. A very speical place.

Children's best pastime bench . . .

I know this isn't a people bench but a metal sculpture but I fell in love with it when I spotted it and there is a bench . . . even if it is completely occupied with statues reading!

Rattan porch bench

Saw this in the neighborhood where I go to take photos of the Kiggins House remodel. Even tho the porch looks old, it has a nice kept bench and beautiful surrounding flowers. Did you notice the little bells hanging from the welcome sign on the house?
