These 2015/2016 Summer holidays during a couple of fun-filled weeks at the Phillip Island beach house, we put Lindsay's Seat into the garden. Lindsay is my late father in-law, this beach house in Newhaven was his dream and vision. We hope that anybody passing by feels welcome to take a seat on Lindsay's Seat and enjoy the amazing view.
Below are some photos of the day.
Site levelled, footholes inspected before the seat is moved into position.
The seat is moved into position by Lindsay's daughters - Melanie, Kim and Sally.
Lightly cemented into place to deter would-be thieves, Harry acts as a trusty weight whilst Paul ensures all is level.
Lindsay's Seat finally in place.
Paving and mulch to complete the effect, shrubs to come.
And finally, here is the view that makes it all worthwhile.
How thoughtful, love the bench - thanks for sharing
