The worlds gone mad.

The world has gone mad. Because everything is open and back to 'normal' now and Tuesday is a national holiday here, everywhere is jam packed solid.! All boulangeries have sold out of everything by 11am. There is a 40 car queue to get into the supermarket car park which is already full. Our small town is bulging and all tables and chairs are full outside and in bars and restaurants. It's manic with foreign car registrations clogging all the streets.

Because of a friend talking about baguettes I just fancied one. All gone.!!

Busy around here but nothing like that.

It's the normal season when the French Lemmings (Lemini francii) start their run towards salt water, they generally travel in small groups which may equate to a family plus sized unit. They migrate with the fridge, canary, cat, dog, grandmother, and of course all the young offspring. Itis important that the young learn early on, in their lifespan, thevways and routes if thus annual event.

If you don't believe me about the generic name feel free to look it up ! You really could not make up this migration pattern that will exist until mid August, after such a long period of inactivity, it seems strange that they want another four weeks to recover now. But, opening up lockdown has been tiring for them all..

OK, I made up the specific name....

hi ray

its the same here in ascot and the surrounding areas

we went out for a little drive yesterday and every carpark is full and people everywhere especially where you can park and go for a walk

also it seems that the youngsters just dont care about the corona virus and are walking and partying in big groups

just hoping things dont get bad again

Barnard Castle was heaving yesterday. Much busier than normal. Probably people coming to test their eyes. Apparently tourist enquires shot up 160% after President Cummings came for a jolly day out to test his eyes.

Yes Barry n Barry, seems like it mass exodus to the countryside. I guess as we have got used to the peace and tranquillity over recent months it comes as a shock to see crowds.

Morella is a lovely walled town high in the mountains just inland from us here. I could not believe the amount of traffic headed that way at mid day today. It was as close to bumper to bumper as it gets here. There is no way that number of people could social distance there.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

I hate it. I know we need tourists here and I was never one for crowds but even more so now. Its always quiet here and sparsely populated but its been even quieter during lockdown. Places like Barnard Castle and Richmond now on a sunny weekend are no go areas for me I Reckon now.

We were hoping to get off to Flamborough in the van for a month or two but it now looks like if we do it will be right on top of the summer holidays. I think all these places on the coast are going to be crammed.

True

But why not ?

People want to visit and experience beautiful places

They often live in non beautiful places And have prevented for months from experiencing the peace and quite that those who live in rural and seaside places take for granted

Like us with our MHomes we are not going to visit grotty areas Here or abroad

Difficult for those areas of beauty I agree

BuT many have been forced to live in crowded Covid areas

And now want to breathe

Just watched Countryfile and disgusted with all the damage and debris left in the countryside by these same people who want to experience beautiful places.
I guess they live in a slum and just transfer it to any beauty spot they want.
