  1. Some US states are in lockdown. I wish Florida would protect us with measures similar to those you have posted. People here are free to go to stores without a mask here. There are few restrictions. It is scary going into the grocery store. Most of our groceries are now delivered from Walmart. All the best, Kavita! ❤

  2. Uncle Cyril is doing the right thing. I watched him on the TV last night and I thought he spoke really well. Less finger wagging and more the stark appeal to for all of us to make the sacrifice this year for fear some of us won’t see another. Sending good wishes from our side to yours. Stay safe, Kavita 🙂

    • Ken, he had no choice. The people gave him no choice. Our holidays means visits to the sea and people from rural areas have no boundaries, hence the rules because social distancing and the wearing of masks or even staying at home, all this, and they do not do.
      Yes there is indoor dining with curfews and strict rules.
