Doorstep Walk: Sand Point

My first ‘Doorstep Walk’ of 2021; heading out to Sand Point from home, in what we refer to as Lockdown 3.0.

Sunday 10th January 2021

This was my first ‘Doorstep Walk’ of the year, with England having been set in to its third iteration of Lockdown, with the dawn of 2021. As hard as it appears sometimes, I do feel it’s very important to abide by the rules and to stay local to where you live.

Monthly Miles: October 2020

Reviewing my miles and walks from October 2020.

I find it surprising to think back to where we were six months ago. Still in the grip of a proper Lockdown (unlike the current model) yet with certain restrictions easing, while some (myself included) made a steady return to work.

Yet this time in between has passed. That is significant. Much uncertainty may remain, as we attempt to look forwards. But recognising that time can and will pass is very important, in my opinion.
