Please sit down

I found this bench today by Alvøen Hovedgaard in Bergen, Norway today. It has been well used and seems to be in need of a lick of paint, but could still be a friend in need for sore feet.

Paulie (PERBS) collects benches - I hope she will enjoy this one.

Jøss å min så flott en benk!! Se den "foseggjorte" ryggen da gitt.
Ja, en slik hadde man ikke takket nei til du :-))

Fin fin lørdag kveld til deg.
Her er det nå god mat og NRK underholdning som står for tur.

I think I might be rather cautious about sitting on a bench such as this one - not unless I had a towel to put down first.

Simple, beautiful, great composition, just perfect :-)

Takk, kan trenge det etter å ha løpt etter ørn og det som verre er i dag.
Alvøen, der er det fint. Hadde planer i høst om å ta en tur ut dit og ta bilder av allèen der ute. Hvis den fortsatt er der? Den må ha vært fin i høstfarger. Men du vet, det er det med å få tiden til å strekke til.
Nå har vel alle bladene blåst bort.
Jeg var mye i Alvøen som liten (10 -15 års alderen) Var på rideleir på Alvøen rideskole den gangen hver sommer. Og det var så mange flotte steder å ri der ute. Nå har jeg ikke vært der på noen år, så det er nok veldig forandret er kan jeg tenke meg.

The metal work is just gorgeous! Thanks for placing it on your blog. I will link to it from the Benches blog so others might see it also. If one were tired and needed to sit a spell, no one would gripe about the worn wood/paint job. Maybe they found it and plan to restore it when they get time. It would be neat to stop back there in another season and see if they have restored it. . . thanks again -- was a nice surprise!

A pretty photo indeed. I used to look for these exact ideas to sketch up on my pad of paper as I walked around... very nice.

This bench is lovely the way it is, to my eyes. But if something isn't done it will fall apart, I'm afraid. Nice photo!
