This Social Isolation is For the Birds

Someone forgot to tell our weekend visitors that all flights to East Dalhousie have been cancelled for the foreseeable future–government orders. But like some others who refuse to follow the rules, they showed up unexpected.  With the distance they’d come from, we hadn’t the heart to send them flying. I’ll admit, we were a bit apprehensive but they did practice social distancing for the entire visit even if they didn’t wear masks. So what if we broke the rules this once. I mean, you tell me, what did it hurt?

  1. Seeing that makes me think the cottage lawn is probably full of goose poop – typically they move in until we arrive with Charlie, then they move up the lake. Fun to see the babies, though.


    • Glad you were finally able to get out to your cottage. It feels good to have some restrictions lifted. I hope the numbers stay down and more can be added! We will have coffee one day. 🙂


  2. The sky is off-limits to most except for Canada Geese. We have them here in Spain too. The only other Canadians besides me!


    • Canada geese seem to be everywhere! They seem to be more abundant these past years than any other time that I can remember. One fall I worked in an orchard and they passed overhead every day. We used to wave to them. I don’t know why .
