Sands of Torture ~ Lockdown on the Gower Peninsula (South Wales, UK)

I can cope with most aspects of lockdown life – the despair and ever present sense of impending doom – but not being able to go for a walk on the beach (because it’d be illegal to drive there) feels like no less than torture.

But, alas, I’m very aware of how much worse it could be, of how fortunate we are to be fit and healthy. I’m happy to do my bit, to stay in.

And at least I have these memories, and photos from just a week or so ago, to remind me of what we have to look forward to.

But god help ‘em if they try to take my wine away!
