My baby steps out of lockdown

Visible to anyone in the world

I've been sheltering for 12 weeks, because I am quite vulnerable.

Today I went out, at last. Infection in my locaility is down to the level just before the lockdown. So I decided that, given the good weather, it would be safe to emerge blinking into the sunlight. It could be "Now or never", with "Now" being the better option.

Here is a record of the exploration* I made on my mobility scooter.

*  "X" marks a spot where a car pulled up on the other side of the road and the driver wound down the window and said "Dr Walker, I presume."  Well not exactly that, it was someone I knew, who said "How are you?" but roughly similar.
