Our Social Distancing Walk In The Rain  by phil_howcroft

Our Social Distancing Walk In The Rain

Claire and Kirsty (my daughters), my wife and Ruby went on a Social Distancing walk (in the rain).

It's the first time we've all been together since 14 March 2020, almost three months. That's a long time.

Ruby was really pleased to see our daughters, as too were Jane and I

Claire (left side of the frame) is now pregnant, she'd just found out when we last all met, but didn't announce it until she had her first scan.

When I took the pic with my camera (my new camera), I said move closer together, but Jane said we cannot !!! I'd dropped my "social distancing awareness" while behind the lens...easy to do.

Anyway here is a photo shot in the rain. Ruby is sporting her raincoat, quite big on her , but it does keep her dry (an Aldi special buy )

The shot is at Arnot Hill Park, Arnold, on the way back from the walk, the sun came out !


I like the story telling aspect of the story
You have a lovely family and congrats, granddad! I think your photo sets an excellent example for the rest of us!

@fbailey thanks felicity, having a photographer on hand will be good , I hope the social distancing regulations may have changed by the time the baby is born !

@marlboromaam maggie, thanks for your lovely comment, that's very kind of you to say :)

Nice shot. It'll be a reminder of the endemic times. I haven't seen my family - or my partner (she's trapped on the Isle of Man) - since early March. I have hopes that it won't be long now.

Lovely shot of your family and lovely Ruby. Her raincoat is very funky.

Nice but not nice 😊

Lovely shot of your close family. Ruby isn't keeping to social distancing rules. Many people disregard these rules here unfortunately.

Lovely photo of your family Phil....I expect Ruby is very fed up & confused about this social distancing. We haven’t been to see Lydia yet...there are many cases in Lancaster & shes works for the NHS. Our daughter Cathy goes back there too tomorrow part time at her podiatry so will have to be vigilant. Blackpool is rife too so not going that way either!

@ellida Oh dear a Graham, that was bad timing...hope you get together very soon.

This is fabulous. A sign of the times we will never forget. Glad you could at least meet at a distance in the rain!

You're one of a few abiding by the rules. Good one.
