Monday 3rd August
I hope you had as nice a weekend as I! Weather was ok so some time was spent on my Poop Deck of course. And the forecast for this week is for more nice sunshine and getting progressively warmer as the week draws on.
The town is looking lovely with all the Umbrellas adorning the streets. I confess that in my ignorance I do not understand the relevence, all I do know is that they look nice.
I was invited to join Willy and Sue on Sunday afternoon in front of the Farmers, and we enjoyed some good Guinness and some pleasant conversation.
This awful Pandemic seems determined to stay with us for some time yet. Local Lockdowns are in force in a few places now. Everyone needs to "do their bit". Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Observe social distancing. It's not that hard to comply, is it?

So here we are in August. It was frequently the holiday time " first two weeks in August". The whole district seemed to shut down and get away for their "hols".
This year it seems like "Staycations" awill be the norm, so the Lake District can expect lots and lots of visitors, for sure.
Yesterday was a scorcher with lovely blue skies so I enjoyed a couple of hours on the Poop Deck, of course. The temperature was high and there is a sharp contrast this morning. A drop of about 10 degreees I think.
Lovely decorations in town ttoday with Umbrellas adorning teh Market Place. Take a look for yourself! You can always rely on Ulverston.

The last day of July and it's going to be a scorcher!
This dreadful pandemic is still with us and I see that various areas in the country are now subject to Local Lockdowns. That should come as a distinct warning to everyone else who may just be feeling a bit complacent. Please obey the Government Guidelines! Stay Alert! Stay Safe! Your parents always would tell you that "Prevention rather than Cure". Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Maintain Social Distancing. It's not difficult!
