Right, prepare to scroll down and down … herewith, the remaining Bench Series 2015 photos, presented geographically. It’s a mix of incidental benches and focus benches.

Along the Corniche, Cannes

Another place you may never have heard of — unless you’ve taken the train to the Grand Canyon.
A marvellous use for old train parts!
Grand Canyon Village
El Tovar Hotel
A bench made from a log. I did not try this one for comfort, I admit.

This is Oak Alley Plantation, well worth a visit if you’re in the area.

And that, you’ll be relieved to learn if you’ve made it this far down the page, is the end of the Bumper Bench Bonanza. “Thank you” to everyone who has visited these posts over the past year!
