If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise. No, not teddy bears having a picnic but a rainbow tree adorned with ribbons and messages of hope for troubling times.

Glorious weather brought out flocks of lycra’d cyclists and packs of dog walkers in sensible shoes. Everyone toed the line, distance wise, and we didn’t encounter any pond life thinking the 2 metre rule didn’t apply to them.

By the end of our stroll we’d worked up quite a thirst but, as the pubs are all shut, we made do with a glass or two in the garden afterwards. Life could be worse. We could run out of booze.

  1. I’m glad you’re in an area where people respect the social distancing guidelines. The biggest abusers of those guidelines around here are law-enforcement personnel! They drive me crazy. And now, because of a state proclamation, our town has re-opened. That means droves of tourists will be coming to town. The ones I’ve seen so far have not worn masks and have not socially distanced at all. Guess I won’t be going to town for while.
