The Great Outdoors

Lyte’s Cary

What will be the first thing you do when the isolation is lifted? Where will you go? Who will you see? What will you do?

For me, not being able to get into the great outdoors is the big frustration at the moment. Yes, my posts have included daily walks around Glastonbury, but I want to get properly out and about. Having moved to Somerset seven weeks ago, I am itching to see more of the local area, the countryside, the seaside resorts.

My National Trust and Glastonbury Abbey passes are sitting in my wallet, going unused because all are shut. The countryside is very apparent from here. Looking out of my office window, I can look across Butleigh Moor to the Hood Monument, knowing I cannot, in all good conscience, get out and visit, climb the hill and see the Tor from another angle.

Frustration and cabin fever are kicking in…

  1. We had to cancel our trip to Niagra Falls due to the lockdown, which would have been our first excursion outside of Toronto. We really want to explore Canada more and visit some of the sights, so that’s what we’re looking forward to post-lockdown, especially now the weather is warming up. Also, one of our Brighton friends had to cancel visiting us, so that was another frustration.
