I thought I'd try a 'Riley riddle':

My prefix you sit on.
My suffix you swat at.
My infix you walk on,
But I am beautiful to look at.

What am I?

(It doesn't really rhyme if all the words are the same though, does it?!)

  • $\begingroup$ I almost posted just the answer to then edit in the explanation, but I thought that might be cheating, so I just typed fewer letters! You probably started before me. $\endgroup$
