Let’s all go to the beach

It’s the start of another beautiful weekend and we went up on the prom to see what the situation was.

This was the beach on the 22nd and 23rd of May, so just a week ago.

These were taken this morning:

Not bad, but when you add these:
Loaded up for a day on the beach, along with potentially hundreds of other sun seekers.
Track and Trace anyone?
Yeah, right. Good luck with that. Apparently a gentleman was standing outside the local corner shop unsure of what the procedure was as he was a visitor for the weekend …………..
from a town 65 miles away (I just checked it out) where there are a lot of virus cases.

The car parks were also filling up, but the cheapskates who didn’t want to pay parked on the road instead.

This is Day One of the weekend before lockdown rules are relaxed and if it was just due to the holiday season, we would be accepting of visitors to the town.
But it’s not.
And wherever these people have come from, they are thoughtless as regards others, especially the residents.
Still, all was not bleak and bad news.
And this kind of family is welcome anytime:
Love the way this front babe is stretching his legs.

Sadly there is still no sight of any ducklings at all, nor the other goslings I photographed earlier in the month.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I think the populace has lost their collective minds! At least in my part of the world and from the looks yours too! My mantra has been “Stay well, stay safe, stay home”

  2. Omg. This is a recipe for disaster. Stay safe, Di!

  3. I have seen a few posts by British bloggers that include similar types of photographs, Di. If your virus figures don’t start to climb, then you know you are out of the woods. That may be the silver lining.

  4. AW!! ❤ the geese. The people? You can keep 'em. Feh.

    This the sort of behavior that will increase the number of deaths and people sick with covid

    A bit like Cornwall, with the car parks filling up with visitors, who shouldn’t actually be here.
    The locals, by and large, are respecting the rules, but slowly we are being invaded by holidaymakers, staying overnight and flouting the advice.
    Yes, it is scary.
