Inhospitable Picnic Tables

When I read the prompt for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Tables, Chairs, Picnic Tables I remembered a couple of picnic tables and some benches on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. As I had to go into town I made a short detour to get some photos of them.

The flood water had dropped a few inches before it froze and I took the photo.

This picnic table was mostly buried in snow and ice until recently. All the rocks around the picnic table and in the snow were thrown there by waves before the shoreline was covered in snow.

These two benches and two more out of shot are less inhospitable than they were last year. Then the water level in Colpoy’s Bay was so high they were effectively on an island and only way to get to them was by wading through the water.

 

After writing this post I remembered this inhospitable bench I photographed last autumn. Outside the entrance to the abandoned grocery store in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, the bench is surrounded by Private Property, No Trespassing signs. As if anyone would want to sit down and view the parking lot from it.
