bench

A to Z (my theme is pictures from where we walk our corgi, Koda)

B - Bench


There are lots of benches to sit down at where we walk Koda. One could enjoy sitting there and enjoying watching people walk by. 

A group of benches.


And sometimes benches have the best of views.



Are you a people watcher? I definitely am.

I don't know, but I really like your bench pictures, especially your last one! : )

Michelle Wallace said...

Those benches contain so much story-material, just waiting to be discovered!
Lovely pictures...

TARYTERRE said...

I LOVE that last picture. Just the kind of place I love to go to.

There are many benches each of different types!

What would we do without this pleasant way to enjoy the world? "Come rest for awhile" they all say. Photos are great!

What a beautiful place you have to go for a walk. Yes, I love people watching and could imagine sitting on one of those benches.

Beautiful photo's my friend. And love the topic. One I have enjoyed since you chose such a unique name for this blog...
I always love the VIEW here...

Wendy said...

You have beautiful places for walking. I do enjoy people-watching too.
Returning your kind visit from A to Z.

I'm envious of where you live! I can't even think of any benches in my town, except at the ice cream shops that are only open in season.

I l live benches in parks. But I don't care for the backless ones - I like to be able to lean back.

Pat Hatt said...

Fun to watch people sometimes indeed, a bench for a bench with a view, go figure lol

Aditi said...

The last image is breathtaking!

Intense Guy said...

So many benches.. so little time!

:)

I like the "memorial benches" that have a person's name on them - I write them down and see if I can learn more - once, I met the person that provided the bench in memory of his wife - he was so nice!!

Big Mark 243 said...

... makes sense... all of these benches seem to have quite a view...!

Dana said...

I'm definitely a people-watcher—and as I watch them, I can't help but make up stories about their lives. I've found some wonderful inspiration in those around me. :)

Tracy said...

I think I'm jealous of your dog being able to be walked in such a fabulous area.

Danielle L Zecher said...

It is so pretty there! What a great place to walk Koda.

Jerralea said...

Yes, I am definitely a people watcher - and a nature gazer!

I've taken a few bench pictures myself.

My favorite ones are the ones overlooking water.

Your last picture is a stunner!

Mevely317 said...

Each of these spots is so lovely and inviting ... what a treat to visit them whenever you wish!
Off the top of my head, I'd probably gravitate to #2.

PS - Yes, I love 'people watching'!

Linda said...

"Beam me up Scotty" over to those marina benches for a day of people watching! Beautiful!

The Brown Recluse said...

I like watching people. I think I'd like walking/sitting in that park...what a beautiful place! You and Koda got it goin' on!

Tara Tyler R said...

this makes me want to revisit my idea to travel the us and beyond photographing fences for a coffee table book... love the benches! and with benches there are so many possibilities - who will sit on them, what will they do or talk about?

i love watching too! i wonder who's watching me? ha ha

happy b day

Cindi said...

Proud to call myself a bench warmer....LOL luv the pics thx for the journey

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

So beautiful. If I was there, I doubt I'd get much else done but people watching. LOL. Awesome photos.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I am a people watcher however it doesn't happen if I don't leave the house! Love your benches and views today.

It rained most of the night, did you get any?

Paula said...

I would love to live where you do. Those views are out of this world awesome. Or I guess I should say beautiful since this is B day

Sue Fagalde Lick said...

Beautiful photos. Like Michelle, I can see all kinds of stories happening here, and I can feel myself just enjoying one of those benches in the sun.

Jen Forbes said...

What a lovely place. Koda must get plenty of fresh air trying out all of those benches!!

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

I love people watching. So many beautiful views in these photos!

Sharon said...

Oh boy, yes - I am a people watcher. One of my favorite places to watch people is at the local swap meet. Most of the time I just get such a kick out of seeing the outfits people wear!!

Lovely benches - lovely views!

Lynda said...

What beautiful and wonderful opportunities to enjoy outdoors and each other and to get a break when you need one from taking a walk.

Lexa Cain said...

I love the benches, especially the weathered timber one. It looks rustic and inviting.

Thanks for stopping by the blog earlier. I love your theme of the A-Z as it is something interesting and different. The coast that is near us doesn't look anywhere near as scenic. I'd probably go walking more by the water if it was that pretty.

I am a people watcher and I love the bench too. It makes me feel peaceful.

SweetMarie said...

It so pretty there! I am a people watcher and it's funny because I may tell my husband not to stare and then I catch myself starring. LOL

Hope all is well. :) I saw a lady at the SPCA with a Corgi and thought of you and Koda. :) She and her husband rescued a dog that had the chain growing into his neck. Dog people are some of the nicest people ever. :)

Barbara In Caneyhead said...

I'm not a people watcher, but I could really settle in and enjoy myself on any of your benches. Glad you are A-Zing!

Love benches. Love your ones.

What lovely scenes, I can just imagine sitting there, holding hands, kissing, romance all around!

Beautiful!

People watcher, oh yeah!

J Hanna said...

I would love being able to be there and sit on a bench facing the ocean. Lucky ducky! Plus, the letter B allowed you to talk about the theme of your blog, which is pretty neat :).

I miss my corgis so much. They used to love sitting by the benches in Laguna Beach with me on walks. I am living through your posts with Koda and enjoying them very much.

My husband is the people watcher, tho I don't mind doing so as sometimes I need to be a wallflower and sometimes I may need data for my own fiction writings. Otherwise, I'm usually the one between the two of us who is up and doing or talking to people!

Vidya Sury said...

Wow! Love, love, love!
Yes, I am a people watcher and proud of it!

Now you've made me want to fantasize about chilling on one of those benches all day!

:-)

Carol Noren Johnson said...

My hubby loves to sit and watch people. He has dementia, but can even enjoy sitting in parked our car with our dog on his lap while I shop.

Vicki said...

What a beautiful place to walk or sit and enjoy the scenery.

Yes, I am a people watcher. My friend and I used to go to the airport to watch all the people coming and going. We saw some pretty
amazing and strange things.

Linda :) said...

I would love to sit on these benches... what a great place to visit while you walk Kona... :)

Marianne (Mare) Baker Ball said...

love all your benches! You are in such a pretty area. :)

Chatty Crone said...

I would love to see there and look at that scene you have on your header!

tombensoncreative said...

If you're a writer, you owe it to yourself to be a people watcher. It gives a distinctive edge to your characterisation.

Mary said...

LOVE to sit and watch people...especially if it's in a beautiful place like that!
