A few days ago, I let my children watch the video of our previous holidays. They like beach holiday the most; especially the swimming pool part. Since I am the camera/videowoman, I can't join them in the pool. Furthermore since it is the public place, I've got to keep an eye on our belonging laying at the their Picnic Tables.
While waiting, I keep myself comfortable laying at one of their Adirondack chairs reading a book when I got bored of shooting them. ;)
Park Benches are a great place to meet people. I made friends while hanging out at the park benches during our holidays while watching our children play at the playground.
