The fun, artistic benches of Liberty Station.

A happy sun shines above beach and ocean on this unique bench, where anyone might sit and relax.

Liberty Station is a wonderful place to spend the day in Point Loma. Its beautiful promenade contains many small museums, art studios and cultural attractions. When you walk around the grounds of this brilliantly converted Naval Training Center, you’ll notice a number of artistic benches placed around the old barracks, military buildings and plazas. I recently took photos of many benches. Just for fun!

  1. What fun! There is a store in Seattle that sells furniture painted this comfortably. i always thought it would be so much fun to have a dining room table, chairs, dressers, desks, etc. painted this wildly. As you can tell, I love color!!!!
