Last night I had a shock at 8pm. Someone rapped the door to tell me the barrier would be closing. I said that's OK, I'm just staying here.

Turns out he was the guardian for the camping and ALL parking overnight is considered camping. So it cost me £23 (yes, £23!!) for an overnight stop, on my own, with no facilities. Well, I COULD have had electricity if I'd moved but I'd had a glass of wine - and generally don't take electricity anyway as it's too much faff. Welcome home to NI, I thought!!

So now I AM home. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. I didn't do many miles but there was lots to see, many very pleasant walks and though there wasn't very much interaction with others due to covid, what there was was enjoyable.

I'm in an area that's under restrictions so I don't think I'll be venturing anywhere for a week or two. I think the wee old lady's request to me to move on brought it home how threatening my presence could seem to a small community.

I missed your report of a request to move on Jean. Where did that happen?

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.

Post #38 Alan, when I was in Moville.

She was perfectly within her rights and I respect that.

Thanks Jean. I was interested to discover that people in rural areas are so afraid of strangers bringing the virus in with them.

It's quite a lively wee village and there's a watersports place just along from her that probably has 'strangers' coming in every day. I believe that area was put under extra restrictions shortly after I left so she was probably listening to the news n getting anxious. I hope I don't get the blame!!

I was thinking how we may go back to the middle ages with this virus, when people were very suspicious of "strangers". Even when we first moved to Norfolk, 40 years ago, we were subjected to a bit of it.
