I don't often participate in challenges. I have enough obsessions to overcome, without adding another one. But when I saw this bench, at the end of March (wooden benches) and on the cusp of April (benches with a view) I decided I had no choice. It's perched on a headland on the south end of Dalmeny Beach in southern NSW, looking out over mown grass and coastal rosemary to Baranguba, a lighthouse island 7 kilometres away where there are colonies of seals and penguins and breeding grounds for shearwaters, seagulls and terns.
