Safe distance

Yesterday on my walk (for exercise), I did my usual circuit on local residential roads and then Richmond Park. At all times I was more than 6 feet away from anyone else. All above board and in accordance with the new rules.

But it was just so sad somehow. I have never been one for close contact with others, but when approaching another walker coming towards me who veers, ostentatiously or embarrassedly, into the road or onto the verge to avoid me, I cannot help but feel hurt. Or at least disturbed. I know this is the right thing to do, and was doing it myself too. But still.

The more uplifting story however was that I saw no-one flouting these distance rules, other than obvious couples enjoying the sunshine and their relationships. And the Park appears to have security guards and parking spaces specifically for NHS workers.
