A Bench with a View

This weeks benches are from Valley Forge Historical Park. Choose your bench then sit back and enjoy the view. The people in the bottom picture chose to sit near Major General Friedrich Wilhelm Baron von Steuben's statue. The bench in the top photo was very simple, but all mine.

If you like to see other photos of benches please see Rune's blog for more of "Bench of the week."

  1. What a lovely view from your bench, I expect to see deer at any moment.
    They must have needed a large piece of granite to fit Major General Friedrich Wilhelm Baron von Steuben's name on it!

  8. I love that park...and it's so big! Von Steuben was very important to winning the Revolutionary War.

    Nice shots!

  10. A great place to sit awhile to contemplate, or with a pad and pen to write. I can envision all sorts of new stories. A truly wonderful place.

  11. What a great catch! Loved the single bench in the first photo because of the great view it provided while sitting in comfort. Then you show the benches at the historical marker and I loved those too! Glad you are on the look out for benches too. . . I find new ones almost every day or several every week and love collecting them on my blog as well as visiting my friend, malyss in France and her bench blog. She loves benches as much as I do!

  13. I like the view from "your" bench, it leads my thoughts away to the horizon...

  14. I thought that was Valley Forge. It's been years, but your photos brought it all back.

  15. Any kind of trouble vanishes and seems to be able to find happiness if I can sit on this bench.
    A bench of the happiness.
    Thank you.

  16. With the top picture, my dominant thought is to wonder what is behind you.
