I am due to have my first vaccination in less than an hour, and will be glad of it. Hubby had his two weeks ago, so I hope everything goes as smoothly for me as it did him.
We had a long walk this morning, going through the park, up along the prom, then down the back roads, and through the park again to home. We saw few people which was nice as we didn’t have to avoid everyone, but as we were coming out of the park, we met up with 7 of our dog walking friends, all going in different directions being in various stages of their walks! We couldn’t stop for fuss because I didn’t want to have to rush for my appointment, but we passed the time of day in passing and managed to distance safely. We got home just before 11am. Kettle immediately on for a very welcome cup of tea, my third of the day.
We’d noticed a tired bee on the path in the park and so did our bit to help it. People in the past have laughed at me as I prod what they can’t see on the ground with a flower, talking apparently to myself. I think it’s captured in this post. Anyway, we got Mr Bee on a flower and carried him to a bush. On our way back, he was still there, but looked more active, so hopefully he was reviving nicely with the flower and warmer temperature.
Not much else on the agenda today actually. It’s warm and dry but overcast, though we could just make out the new turbines on the horizon of the next phase of the off shore wind farms here. The above picture was taken in November 2017. We’ve counted over 200 on a clear day, and I sometimes find myself thinking of being the centre of a birthday cake surrounded by candles!

These are inland and about four miles away. Lincolnshire is flat, so I guess conditions are ideal. There are 16 here, and most times at least one isn’t working!
