Bermuda benches

Hamilton City Hall
Bench sculpture: Hamilton City Hall and Arts Centre

For its final fling in December, Jude’s Bench Series is “anything goes”. Last month, we escaped the Glasgow weather for a week in Bermuda and did lots of bench-spotting so I’m piling them all in at once.

I love the top picture so much that I’m currently using it as my Twitter and Facebook avatar. It’s from the City of Hamilton, as are the two below of Fort Hamilton and the waterfront.

Outside Fort Scaur, John took a picture of me admiring the view in reasonable comfort. I snapped the one next to me to show that I’d definitely chosen the right bench.

Fort Scaur itself had a bench next to a very big gun!

This bench and cross are at Heydon Chapel, with another gorgeous view.

Contemplating the sea on the North Shore:

And, finally, Whale Bay where I loved the contrast of the emerald grass, the turquoise sea and the bench dividing the two.

There’ll be more on Bermuda in the New Year, but this is my final post of 2015. In the meantime, Season’s Greetings to you all however, whatever, and wherever you will be celebrating in the next couple of weeks. See you in 2016!

    Very interested to read a bit about Bermuda, Anabel as I don’t know much about it (apart from the triangle!). It looks a lovely place and you have certainly taken some gorgeous photos. Wishing you a wonderful 2016 and happy blogging! 🙂

    I’ve never considered visiting Bermuda. Is it mainly accessed from the U.K.? Thanks for dropping by my blog Anabel and have a lovely new year.

      UK and US mainly. It’s tiny so most people probably don’t notice it!

    Absolutely love that Hamilton bench sculpture, almost as much as I love the colors of Bermuda!

    That first bench is wonderful. Even though a statue on a bench reduces the seating capacity, I still love ’em. I’m partial to the FDR/Churchill bench on Bond Street, myself. Enjoy your blogging-break!

    One of those benches is VERY minimalist.
    Lovely series.

    As always the photos are gorgeous. We’ve had a mild December, but they help take the chill off. I hope you have a very happy holiday. I’m sure you’ll celebrate in style.
