The Distance Project 27
As the lockdown stretches through the cold grey winter months, I sometimes visit South Willen Lake. It’s a popular spot for exercise. Some people prefer to wear masks, even though it’s not a requirement outdoors. Others, like me, prefer not to.
I’ve driven up to the lake before and walked around it, but now I prefer to bicycle there instead; it’s good for me and I’m trying to extend my cycling range.
So far, by the time I get to Willen on the bike I need a bit of a rest, so I’ll take photos until I feel ready to go home.
I try to do as much weekly shopping as possible online, then go to my local Sainsbury’s at Shenley Church End to collect it. I’ve been doing this throughout the lockdown and find it easier and more predictable than walking round a supermarket.
Exercising and shopping; what a life.
Of course, the lockdown relaxed a bit this week. I’ve already met up with my brother, and I’ll see my sister later today. They, like nearly everyone else I know, were a little too far away before to justify a visit.
