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.
I had a chance to leave work and head into the city for a talk tonight at Trinity college followed by a quick wander on the way back to the car. I spotted that Dublin is getting ready for Pride.
I went for a lovely mid week walk tonight. It was amazing to have such a lovely Summer Night.
I can’t believe it is one year since I started the blog. Time has gone by so fast. Today I took a very quick walk in the snow.
