After a peaceful start to week fourteen of lockdown due to COVID-19 we have a spell of hot weather and once again the crowds flock to the beaches in Dorset. As no limit was set on the distance people can travel for a day out people are driving from as far away as the Midlands. Crowded beaches and promenades make it impossible to maintain a social distance. The Sandbanks peninsula is gridlocked for twelve hours as 500,000 descend on the beaches of the peninsula and Bournemouth. After one day of total chaos the government declares a major incident in the area and the emergency services rally round and keep the traffic moving and control the number of visitors.

A Tale of Two Knees
New Knees and New Adventures
Following the total replacement of both my knees I was delighted to find that I could still participate in my favourite activities at the same level that I had done prior to surgery. Now I was ready to find out how my new knees would react to trying new activities and experiences like bog walking in Estonia and conservation in Kenya.
