My Last March Bench

green circle benchWooden benches have been the theme for Jude’s monthly challenge, this is my second entry, just in time. This one is situated along the mill leat path, part of the riverside country park in Exeter’s Green Circle. The Circle forms a green corridor to provide a haven for wildlife, and cycle and peaceful footpaths for everyone to enjoy. If you sit on this bench the leat runs through the wooded area behind you and in front there is a view of the stream that runs off to re-join the river Exe. Sometimes that’s a tiny trickle through mud!

It’s a nice walk with lots of ways out to make it as long or short as you feel like, this bench is often a turning point before heading back to the quay for a coffee, beer or ice cream.

There is still time if you have a wooden bench to share with Jude, or from April 1st the challenge is to photograph a bench with a view.

  1. Oh, Gilly, this looks so much like my sort of place. I need to visit Exeter! I love the sunshine and shadows you have captured here, your little dog in the foreground, the bench framed by the trees and the gate/bridge leading us on. Beautifully composed. Now when are you going to show me the quay? And the beer. And the ice-cream?

  2. I like your last march entry (and the upcoming view challenge sounds really nice too – I was wondering what the next theme was and was just on my way to jude’s sit – so thanks for noting it here :))
    anyhow, what a nice resting place to pause and turn around – 🙂

  3. I nearly did, Gilly, but time ran out on me. 🙂 Got a few for April though. Shall I storm her with them all at once? This looks a lovely spot. Near to ‘my’ walk? 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
