Actually managed to get out

Actually managed to get out ….. for the first time in a while. Due to the easing of Covid related restrictions we drove down to the beach and had some nice sea front exercise. Despite pictures in the UK press, everybody was sensible and observed social distancing. They also appeared to be enjoying the weather …

Is the end in sight?

Is the end in sight? The end to lockdown that is. There are some quite confusing reports in the media regarding this, but there is also the implication that we (in the UK) could look at a potential relaxing of the rules. I’m sure everyone would welcome less restrictions. What form that will take is …

Photobombed

A few days ago I got photobombed. It was a nice warm sunny day ( yes we do get those in Wales), so I decided to see if the dragonflies were taking advantage of the weather. I have a couple of places I go locally so I picked one to see if anything was around. …
