There’s something very inviting about the humble bench. All over the world, in all kinds of settings – sometimes crowded, sometimes lonely – they call out to us to sit for a while, rest, and enjoy the view. Whether that view is out over the ocean, across a green field, or even onto a simple suburban footpath, benches make for the perfect place to break up a peaceful stroll, morning, noon or evening.


And if the bench is somewhere secluded, where we can enjoy a bit of quiet solitude at the same time, even better. After all, with so many of us living in crowded cities, finding somewhere to sit down alone and relax can be a real luxury. Often, a good bench strategically placed overlooking the water and under a shady tree – and there’s plenty of those scattered around Seattle; this one overlooking Lake Washington, at Madison Park Beach – certainly makes for an ideal place to while away a few quiet hours daydreaming, reading a good book, or maybe even grabbing a quick nap.
