Benches of the Wainwright Coast to Coast Walk

Day 1: St. Bees Ocean View

During this Wainwright Coast to Coast walk, I became interested in the idea of a bench set up for you to sit and take in a view. Ironically, we hardly did so. Instead we kept on the move, lingering only for a snack and lunch in places where there were typically no benches.

The secondary meaning of an empty bench is about missing someone. I was without the other half of Travelmarx for this vacation/trip for the first time in twenty years. So without further ado, here are a sample of benches (and bridges and a few other structures I saw along) the walk.
