If we are here for a while, the problem is going to be keeping ourselves entertained. This morning at 7.30 I did my second yoga class. I suppose at the age of 70 and a half it is still not too old to learn. The problem I have is, unless I am in front of the instructor and can mirror the moves, my coordination goes totally out of the window. I expect my antics provide entertainment for the rest of the group and I don’t care. I feel as if I have had a good work out, as most muscles are aching.
After yoga comes breakfast and a shower, but beyond this I am beginning to wonder whatever we are going to do with our days. Sarah, Tim and the kids all went paddle boarding this morning, but this is a sport I have never tried and am not sure I fancy. Water and I don’t get on too well together. We shall see though, if boredom is too intense, I may give it a try.
Because the property borders the lake, at least we still have access to this facility. In the mornings it is calm, but in the afternoon the wind gets up and there are waves. Not huge ones, but enough to make swimming and paddle boarding not so pleasant.
A system has been devised for us to order provisions. A spreadsheet has been drawn up and every accomodation unit or camper has to fill in what items they require. Pierre is then going to submit the list to the local suppliers and see what happens. We will keep our fingers crossed that they can deliver everything we have requested.
This afternoon we hear that the government has imposed a curfew. From 4pm to 4am no one is permitted to be on the streets. This will be in place for the next 8 days. It doesn’t really affect us as we have been confined to the compound, but is an indication of how serious things are getting.
We may not write the blog every day for the coming days. If we are confined here for too long it may become boring reading. However, if there are particular developments we will update you.
