Come sit awhile

This is a pretty little bench in Newport, Oregon overlooking the ocean. Please forgive me for not commenting on your pictures. Too busy running back and forth between my two places and painting, etc. etc. Will try and get back on track in the next few days.

What an inviting image. I have been to the West coast but one of my "to do" trips is the Oregon coast to see the ocean and watch the waves hit the huge rocks.
Something that I am attracted to are benches and images of them. This is an adorable and unique bench with an incredible view.
The entire package for me is right here in this image.

After a long day your invitation is very welcome ... I would love to have a spot to look out on the ocean right now, but your lovely photograph will have to make do!

VERY nicely done, Marion! And I must admit that I absolutely love that bench and would love to have it in my new backyard!!

I'm back. Will post for tomorrow... ;-)

@amy: Wouldn't that be wonderful. So you're here and partially settled. I on the other hand am running back and forth between my two homes hoping one will sell and preparing the other for moving in. Great fun. Look forward to your post tomorrow.

What a wonderful place to sit - and to contemplate. I love it, Marion!

@Judy: We could sit together?? I would much rather do that then be headed back out to paint tonight, but Vicki and her three are coming to wash walls and paint. Gotta go with them. Hugs, Marion

Empty benches seem to be a favorite subject of many... I wonder if it is a wish to be alone?
