Where has this summer gone?
The world is truly a strange place at the moment. Whilst the human population is being ravaged by a planet-wide pandemic politicians across the Continents seem to display a mixture of greed, incompetence and plain ignorance. In exchange, many of the population appear to live in fear, whilst others carry on in a self-centred bubble of denial!
As the song says,”Two men say they are Jesus, one of them must be wrong.” It sort of sums up how I feel!!!!
For lots of reasons my motorcycle activity has been somewhat limited of late.
It’s partly due to other more pressing matters, such as building work at Dookes H.Q., but also a reflection of how the current global situation makes me feel; I honestly don’t really feel that I can justify pleasure rides on a motorcycle whilst people are both dying and working so hard to contain the C19 virus.
That said, I am lucky to live in a beautiful part of our island country.
I’m only five miles away from one of the most stunning coasts in the world. Ok I’m biased, I admit!
A small shopping trip the other day morphed into an extended loop on some tourist avoiding back roads which was nice.
It really doesn’t matter if I’m on two motorised wheels or two Dookes Pedal-Powered wheels….it doesn’t take very long to go somewhere to really lift the spirits!
Then there’s Dookes H.Q., sitting outside having an evening gin and tonic the view is, frankly, delightful, I’m very lucky.
Stay safe people and I’ll catch you soon.
