This morning I caught up with a friend and we went out into the local park for a walk. It was so nice to get outside.
We are still in Stage 4 lockdown but we are allowed to meet people from another house outside, like a park. This is a fairly new thing, and only came into force a couple of weeks ago.
Victoria is doing really well and we are expecting that more restrictions will be lifted next weekend. Though, we are also being warned that it won’t be as many as we think. Still, it is good to hear that the number of people with coronavirus has gone down a lot here.
The local park
Well, what can I saw, every man and his dog, or child, were out this morning. I have never seen the park so busy for a normal Sunday morning.
It was really overcast, but it was nice to be out in the park. I was going to take my camera with me and take photos, but in the end, I just grabbed my phone and took a heap of photos. So I have some photos for you today.
Here is a gallery of the images.
The river is the Yarra which is the main river in Melbourne and the one that flows through the city. It does come by us as well. We were really shocked by how much water was in it. It is really full and flowing very fast. You could say it was on a mission.
We have to wear masks when we go out and I’m not gonna lie, I don’t like them. However, having said that I would prefer to wear one then end up with COVID 19. It was strange walking with a mask on.
Another thing I noticed is that people seem to be a lot more anti-social with them. It used to be when you were out walking everyone greeted you. They would just say hello, but this morning only one or two people did that. I don’t know why, but I don’t like it.
We are all in this together, and we need to stick together and continue to be nice to one another. I did say hello to people, regardless of how they were.
