Bench of the Week (19)






Butterstub Marsh is located in the city of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, B.C. It is a man-made bird sanctuary with a wide trail that loops around a wet marsh. A perfect spot for a stroll to get away and refresh one’s energy.

RuneE began an informal meme of Bench of the Week at Visual Norway.

Other participants this week are:
Tom at Wiggers World has a sea shore bench.

Steve Gallow at SG’s Random Photos has a perfect primitive bench.

Raph from Raph’s Ramblings has a different sort of bench that can be carried out into the garden when needed.

PERBS at For the Love of Benches has a busy bench.

Gerald at Ackworth Born, Gone West has a lovely row of benches.

I would have enjoyed sitting there with a telephoto-lens and tried to get a shot at a bird!

This bench invites anybody to sit down and to have a view of the surroundings! A lovely place to watch birds.

Looks like a heavenly place to sit and bird watch with a camera.

What a lovely name for a place, Barbara! I would be saying it to myself as I sat there, and imagining eating lots of buttered toast while watching the birds - and sharing the crumbs with them!

Kind of like watching a sea of grass.
Unusual.

Cultivated fields can have a beauty all their own.
