A clever little 3 seater

We had a lovely day yesterday, travelling with friends to Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills to have lunch with other friends for a birthday. We had a beautiful smorgasbord lunch at The Old Mill and then wandered along the very busy tourist town before heading back for coffee at our friends at Woodside.
We visited Handorf only a couple of months back and was amazed at how this quaint pretty town is so alive with loads of people enjoying the many eateries and shops.

Under our pergola area there has been a corner that I've never been happy with but didn't know how to change it. Before Christmas I had an idea of taking out what was there and replacing it with a bench seat. We went on the search for a 3 seater that would fit into that spot and found one that was just right!  Here are the pics.

Before...just had some plants in pots.

After...removed the pots, covered the dirt over with pebbles, placed a couple of my ficus plants behind the 3 seater.
The middle part of the 3 seater turns into a little table if just 2 people were sitting there. How clever!
A couple of shots of the other part of our outdoor area that gets well used during the warmer months.

And a few pictures of the swollen Murray River at Loxton that is nearly at road level.

That is the sweetest seat ever.
