Pips Bench

 

Sorry I missed posting this week as I was away and did not get a chance to do anything before going but I always find something for Skywatch

 
My wife and I took a walk up Aberedw hill and as normal I stopped to take in the view

 
The track through the quarry on the left used to be a hard climb over a rocky surface but over the winter it was smoothed out, bare in mind I have been coming up here for 20 odd years and struggled up to now because the going is so much easier

 
We took a different track when we got further on and came across this bench

 
It's one of the best ones I have come across and was placed there in memory of Pip Morgan who died of cancer and was a local postman who was a very keen cyclist 

 
I like to thing his friends remember him when they ride past

 
The view from the bench was worth the effort

 
It sits at a cross roads of paths cyclists use
 

 

 
It has become our new go to place and I sit here and take in the view and remember a guy I never met.
RIP Pip
Happy Skywatch

  6. That is a beautiful bench and what a great view! I really miss seeing and walking the English countryside when I come back to the US. I can easily see why it has become your favourite place.

  8. That's a very good view. I love the bench. I don't know where you live but here the cyclists are quite social. The pitch in at all trail work days and look out after each other.

  15. A lot of thought has gone into the construction of that unique bench. Very unusual and just begs for you to sit down and enjoy the view.
