Our first real outing from Perth !
Our restrictions have lifted here, slightly, to allow you to ( distantly) meet up to 20 people, travel within some regions, to go camping, and this week’s easing – we can even go out for a meal. Distancing, numbers limited, contact tracing of course, but still it’s a fantastic improvement.
Getting down to Dwellingup last weekend, which is only about 90 minutes from here, camping in the tall trees, having a bbq on an open fire, chatting to friends with a bottle of beer; it felt like a taste of a more normal life again. We haven’t been nearly as severely impacted by Covid as many other places, so I can only imagine how it has felt to those stuck in tiny apartments, in big cities, for months.
We are lucky enough to have a garden, and were never restricted from going for a walk for exercise, with parks and the beach still open, and the luxury of a takeaway coffee. So we have never had the true limitations of four walls with no escape.
However, I still felt my heart open and mind relax, surrounded by trees and the river. There’s something about being out of the city, in a simpler setting, that is so soothing.
One thought on “First outing from Perth”
Still waiting for camping to be allowed again in QLD but can’t wait, very envious of your trip it looks wonderful.
