Benches for Daydreaming

Do you ever see something and say to yourself "That would be the perfect place for daydreaming," or "What a wonderful place to sit and read."  These photos I found online are the ones that make those thoughts pop into my lil ol' head! 

wooden bench

A great place for birdwatching, in amongst the trees.  I can almost hear them chirping!

Mount Barker Museum
Western Austalia

This one could be a place for waiting while friends or family finish touring the museum.  One may not want to be sitting on this for too long, I'm thinking!

bench and sea

Just the place to contemplate life and the ocean, count the waves, watch the gulls.

bench in a forest

Watching for leprechauns, trolls, fairies...do not disturb!

bench by the road

I would forget the road and concentrate on the water...totally!

bench with flowers
Here is my reading bench...or the one I would choose.  I have a similar bench on the side of the house under the wisteria.  It is a quiet place, good for reading.

Do you have a bench nearby for a favorite pastime?

  1. Interesting that you thought of doing this post! Last evening as I drove along the river as the sun was beginning to dip down in the sky, I noticed a solitary man, sitting quite still on one of the benches along the river, daydreaming.

    I thought to myself, "if I didn't need to hurry on my way, that would make a great "silhouette" type blog post picture.

    1. Keetha - I love bench photos. Yours would have been a good one - too bad you didn't have time. Maybe next time you'll be able to do that. I should carry my camera with me when I go somewhere, just never think to put it in the car.
      Hugs, GraceinAZ

  2. I have been wanting a bench for our yard for a long time. I love the last one you have featured here. This may inspire me to get one this year finally.

  3. I have a cabana in my backyard that I like to sit under. I love the outdoors. When I used to live by the ocean I would walk everyday on the boardwalk and sit on a bench for half an hour before heading back home.

    I miss that...

    1. The cabana sounds wonderfully relaxing! And, a bench by the ocean...priceless! How fortunate you are!

  4. Ah, the benches are so inviting. My favorite spot is my porch swing . It'stopped with a nice cushion and bunches of pillows and I have been known to take a nap there.
    Blessings,

  5. Yes, I do have a favorite bench! I bought it for my first apartment and now it's with me at my new one :) My little dog and I love to sit on the bench in the early mornings and evenings. We watch the ducks, I daydream, have my quiet time with God, pray, and sometimes my little dog and I take a nap :) I love my little bench! Thanks for sharing this post!!
