On the weekdays you can look down the Florida coast in Jacksonville and see the tall orange lifeguard chairs standing silently. No one inhabits the chairs when the beaches are nearly empty, but they still exude an air of safety.
It's like they are watching the waters. Reminding the swimmers of the rip tides and to not swim too far out.
Their size and color make them hard to ignore.
They are exclusive chairs, only for a lifeguard. Not even the birds sit on them.
I really don't think I've ever seen a bird stopping for a rest.
