The double bench effect. Using the table as bench and bench as footstool.

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.
