Friday Bench (11): Donkey Stone Bench

This week's bench is at Donkey Stone Wharf on the Ashton Canal.

Not only are there live geese, but also a weather vane comprising three sculptured geese.

Read all about them on my earlier post: Donkey Stone Wharf.

My favourite benches discovered last week include East Gwillimbury's looking down on Lake Simcoe, Barbara's en route to Lion's Gate Bridge, Dina's in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Leatherdyke's in Whitby, Tom's recycled plastic in Hyde Park, VP's in Weymouth and Yvan's with sleepers in Beijing.


  1. Geese at the Donkey stone bench - there is some poetry here.

  2. Have to agree with RuneE on this one -- we're talking poetry indeed! What a great shot!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. It lokks as if you were staning in the middle of the dock to take this photograph!

    Canada Geese get everywhere don't they!

  4. I really like that photo. The geese look like they're checking whether the bench is comfy enough.

  5. I love how the geese look like they're going to take over the entire bench next!

    Thanks for the link - once my travelling's died down a bit and my new blog's matured a little, I'll be participating properly :)

  6. Interesting bench and "friends" both stone and alive!

  7. Look at all the geese. It must be the weather vane attracting them to this spot. :D
