The day held promise, warmer weather, less wind and low likelihood of precipitation. With that in mind, we opted to get out for our walk in the morning, before the crowds got out. For the most part, we managed this, and with the odd exception, social distancing went well.
However, we still found ourselves being the first ones to move over, climb snow banks, climb up on benches, etc. At one point, we actually stopped to talk with a fellow walker who had moved over before we did. We were not surprised to find she was of a similar age to us.
Why is it that some people think they can continue on as if there is no pandemic? It beats us.
Even the Canada Geese seemed to understand the need for Physical Distancing.
Sauce for the Goose
What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander,
when out for a hike, don’t let your mind wander.
As hikers approach, please move your ass over,
also please keep control of your dog, Rover.
While we can climb snowbanks or even a bench,
one wrong footstep and our knee we might wrench.
We can all share this path for our exercises,
if you just keep to your side, with no surprises.
To all those who get it, a tip of our hat,
if we must keep indoors, we will all get fat.
