The last time I filled my car it was around $1.20 a litre; when I filled it two days ago it was .66 a litre !
So much has changed.
Daily I'd be off driving to one store or another and the dogs would be in the car with me. They'd just chill and travel around until I settled on a good place for a walk: Sandy Lake, the Sackville trails, Webber Falls, and so many wonderful places.
Every week or so I'd go somewhere a bit farther afield.
Now like many, I am shopping only once a week; at 7 bloody a.m. do you mind ! And otherwise am told to not go anywhere that I cannot walk to. That means no driving to parks or beaches. Besides they're all closed and fines of over $600 are being issued to those caught flaunting the rules.
But by following the rules and "staying the BLAZES at home!" as our Premier so eloquently and angrily put it, I hope to live to explore another day.
Initially this post was going to be full of images of places I've explored in the past. Rather than showing you where I cannot go at the moment, I'll show you where I've been lately.
Within walking distance of my home I've found a lovely wooded area on the Sackville River.
The dogs and I head onto one of several different trails daily.
A bit of scrambling gets me to this breath-taking view.
On a chilly day the valley is warmer as it's somewhat protected.
The beavers that made this pond seem to have moved on.
My companions and I are really very lucky.
I hope you are finding places to walk and new things to do during these "interesting times".
