A day of eating and drinking too much but at least there was a little walk to start the day.
I have struggled this year trying to keep up postings each day. Probably due to a global pandemic and constant lock downs. Being limited in movement makes trying to keep a blog interesting hard but I’m going to try again to keep this up. Despite everything Christmas is fun so far. I spent the morning driving to pick up Christmas Puddings from a friend and in the afternoon a cold walk along the seafront where I also bumped into a couple of friends as well. All in all a nice day.
Weather wasn’t great for walking but I went out anyway. With Ireland in lockdown there isn’t anything else to do when you have a holiday from work. Some nice Autumm colours though.
There is so much talk today about Ireland moving back into a lockdown which would mean once again being forced to live within 5km of my front door. A total nightmare so today I chose to go to the seaside for a walk and to enjoy a coffee at one of my favourite coffee shops. If the lockdown comes, I will deal with it but in the meantime I shall enjoy the little freedoms we still continue to have living with level 3 restrictions.
Lovely afternoon spent with friends having lunch and a nice walk around the botanic gardens in Wicklow.
Since I last wrote a post a lot has changed. We now live in a world of lockdowns and restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We have to stay home and only go out when necessary as we minimise the number of people getting the virus. On our daily exercise today we walked around Glendalough. One upside of how we now live is the ingenuity of people and the things that are being created to help people pass the time and still have some fun. The photo today was created using google and 3d imaging which allowed me to pop in a penguin. You can do this simply by using your phone and google and there are a few animals to choose from. I can see me doing this again while in isolation.
Today I headed off for a stroll along Dun Laoghaire Pier. It was still very cold and windy but at least bright and sunny.
For the Bank Holiday we went for a really nice walk in Powerscourt.
A lovely Autumn walk around Avondale Forest Park today.
Today we had friends who came up to visit and they all went for a hike. I joined them later for lunch and a stroll around the lake.
