BENCH OF THE DAY : CHURCH STREET BELLINGEN

DSCF6441

Today’s bench is in Church Street, Bellingen. That’s the café strip as they call it. A pretty small strip but pleasant and familiar to us.

The bench is under the camphor laurel trees. They are known as weeds. Mighty fine weeds they are.

SURFER LOOKING FOR A BENCH

The BEACH BENCH has a significant purpose for ice cream eating or even hot chips. There is supposed to be a BENCH when the Beachcombers come into town, buy their provisions  and then look about – sandy footed, wearing damp soggy boardies and strange T-shirts. The new arrival from the Beach knows he isn’t welcome in any of the Cafes, restaurants or hosteleries as he is so the bench becomes the refuge, the resting place. Sometimes – They take the bench away leading to a wild-eyed, melting ice cream frenzy.
