On My Walk Today I Saw ...... Not a Soul

I am so lucky to live so close to a beach and also live outside the tourist area.

On my early morning walk today I didn't come across a single person. I know we are supposed to keep 1.5 metres apart, but I think I must have been 1.5 km apart today.

The photos are:

1 Walking down the road from my house.

2 At the bottom of my street just crossing the road to the beach

3 At the bench by the beach where my sister loved to sit when she came to visit

4 Our local beach

5 A local resort and marina

6 The breakwater

7 Volcanic rock beach

8 Walking home again

9 Our house, although you can only see the fence and trees, or maybe just a hint of our garage behind the trees. We live on a corner block and our house is just around the corner and surrounded by trees.
Wonderful shots Babs, so lucky you can still walk around.

Looks totally idyllic Babs, no wonder you love living there. If we were both younger we'd seriously think about moving to somewhere like that. I hate lots of OP. Geelong really was Sleepy Hollow when I moved here - and I liked it that way. But the last few years have seen hordes of people, some refugees from the eye-watering Melbourne propery prices, move down here. Much to the coucil's delight, the seas of little boxes are spreading across once was farmland where now all trees have been bulldozed. Far too many cars, people and busyness (normally) for my liking now. It's all very sad. But we live in a great part of Geelong, close to everything, comfortable home, good garden/s, open spaces along the Barwon, and well-served by almost every kind of medical service. In per capita terms we're much better off than Melbourne.

Beautiful shot. I envy you being able to go out for walks. We are on lockdown and unlike some other stupid individuals we obey orders.
April 1st, 2020  
Stunning shots of such a beautiful place. You are so lucky.

Lovely place to walk....I walk to the lakes, 10 mins there then walk 1/2 hour + photo taking time around the lake & 10 mins home & yesterday I saw two people in the distance...Amazing.

Such a beautiful place, Babs! How great to live so close to the beach, too.
April 1st, 2020  
Lovely images from your walk Babs.
April 1st, 2020  
A beautiful walking experience you had! I'm glad people are staying away from each other! It's the safest thing to do right now.
April 1st, 2020  
What a super collage of your beautiful walk!

What a true visual statement of our days.

Wonderful captures and views!

It is wonderful that you can take this walk without fear of coming too close to people. Long may you be able to do so.
April 1st, 2020  
The perfect place to live Babs....it looks idyllic & of course the icing on the cake is the number of friends you both have...mind you that’s all down to your out going natures. A lovely walk! Stay safe!

Such a treat to have it to yourself

@ludwigsdiana We are self isolating but still able to walk on the beach because as you can see there aren't too many people around. Supermarket shopping today and easy to keep a distance there too.

@golftragic Your area is lovely too. I have a friend who used to live in your suburb but moved to Newtown after her divorce. Still close by though.

We were lucky the Air Force posted us here and we decided to stay.

@cherrymartina @ethelperry @rustymonkey @robz @kjarn @30pics4jackiesdiamond @30pics4jackiesdiamond @dide @joannakate @casablanca @momamo @gilbertwood @mcmary @inthecloud5 @flowerfairyann @sangwann @tinley23 @pusspup @annied @louannwarren @merrelyn @kwind @fishers @carolmw @jyokota @jacqbb @helenhall @seattlite @gijsje @elisasaeter @pyrrhula @olivetreeann @radiogirl @sunnygirl @jgpittenger Thanks. We were lucky that the Air Force posted us here 24 years ago and we decided to stay. After 16 moves and 3 different countries it isn't a bad place to be grounded. Luckily it doesn't too busy apart from the middle of summer, Christmas and Easter when the tourists arrive, but fingers crossed tourists will be staying away this Easter although I am sure there will be some stupid people who will turn up.

@newbank I agree, nothing like wide open spaces to save our sanity.

@koalagardens It was peaceful and eerie at the same time. I felt like the last person on earth.

@pcoulson I agree definitely nothing quite like this in Yorkshire. I was born in Yorkshire and David says that where I come from is where the birds fly backwards so the soot doesn't get in their eyes.

@happysnaps Your walking area sounds idyllic too. We are lucky to be able to still experience the beauty.

@happypat Thanks Pat, we are still keeping an eye on our friends remotely. Shopping and collecting prescriptions etc for the ones who are less mobile and checking them out with phone calls and emails.

Great collage of all those informative pictures. I like how spelled out what the individual picture is about.
April 2nd, 2020  
Beautiful walks
April 2nd, 2020  
Strange, isn't it?
April 3rd, 2020  
so beautiful

Beautiful area to be in isolation! I can’t imagine what families with children are going through in cities!
