Seeing them these cold days makes me shiver, though I have enjoyed them immensely in warmer weather. Benches have a tendency to draw you to them, though the temperature can be off-putting. Such is the magic of a bench, whatever the design or location, though some of my favourites are by the sea. This time of year, they represent hope.
This bench in North Rustico was inviting but it was too cold to sit and ponder or just enjoy the setting.
The bench at the end of the boardwalk in Summerside
has a distant view of the Confederation Bridge, making it a great place to sit for a time. Not today!
Benches can be battered as well as snow covered.
This long bench comes with its own cover.
Some benches, like the one below, will wait until spring for their next guests.
And some are a perfect part of the scenery any time of year!
