Bench with a view

Every now and then I get a request via e-mail from people who used to live in Port Elizabeth asking me to take a photo of a spot that holds a significant place in their memories. I have to be honest and say that I haven’t really made lots of effort to go out and look for those places, but that is now changing. Over the last week or so I have spent my lunch hours looking for places and graves all over PE and these photos I will be posting from time to time.
I received e-mails from Darin and Mike within days of each other both asking me to post a pic of a spot at the end of Mill Park Road in Mill Park. Both said that the spot was the ideal place to just sit and wind down after a hard day. The view from the bench takes in the Baakens Valley with Walmer on the other side.

    A leafy suburban vista. Pehaps one of the ghosts from the previous post will come and sit on the bench in the night.

    Hi – I lived on Mill Park Rd in the 50s and 60s and fondly remember that bench. Thanks for the memories!

    Wonderful photo – I always consider the view from the bottom upwards, never noticed the bench high on the cliff top.Have you tried one of your panorama shots from this spot?

    I managed to find this on Google street view. PE looks very good on this service.
