Morning View – Sunday photo

One silver lining to the Lockdown is that we see (from a distance) more people we know on our daily walk. It may just be a passing “hello” and “how are you doing?” but somehow it’s enough to open up the world. Some people I’ve not seen for years. Fellow playground mums from our overlapping Primary School days. We’ve reached the stage where most of the children have flown the nest, but the parenting experience still bonds us together.

During Lockdown, we’re not meant to travel far for exercise. No jumping in the car to explore new areas, so we stay local. Walking along the same lanes and paths as other locals.

This morning, we woke to a heavy frost and a gentle mist, so we walked up the hill and above it all. That’s the Mendips in the distance. View was amazing. May not be able to roam far, but at least we can see it.

    That must be very helpful to see so many people on your walks. A difficult time for all of you, but I know you’ll find a way to make the most of it. 🙂

      Many more people walking. Most our locals too.

    What a gorgeous view!
    It is good that you are still able to get out and even if it’s not far from home. x

      Miss exploring new places, but it is good to enjoy our local area.

    It is an amazing view. I like how you are re-connecting with parents you met in the past. #MMBC

      Always surprisingly how long it is since I last saw people, who I used to see on a regular basis.

    Your view is beautiful! It looks so similar to mine – rolling farmland. I have noticed more people out and about on the paths since the pandemic. There’s not much else to do!

      Everyone is making the most of what they can do at the moment, I think.

    There have been many silver linings during the pandemic. I’m glad to hear about seeing people that you’ve lost touch with. And that view is pretty amazing.

      Thank you. Even just a brief and distant meeting seems novel at the moment.
