L3 (Day 60): On The Quay

It is six p.m. and the day’s light withdraws reluctantly at the ignition of the street lamps. Fish are snapping through the meniscus of the Wensum. They leave soft rippling circles that are eventually smoothed by the thickening dusk.

Another lighter, but cold day.

L3 (Day 59): At The Market

On the bike to Paul’s Butchers and then through the stalls to the friendly family-run, most expensive greengrocer outside The West End of London. This is a place everyone knows isn’t the cheapest place to buy fruit and veg in the city, but it’s the chirpiest and exemplary quality produce too. That’s good enough for me!

The city centre, the locals insist on calling it, was very busy. One thing I can say about the citizens is that they are rubbish at counting. Groups of adults were amiably ambling about with little regard for face marks, social distancing, or the rule of two for exercising. Slightly concerning.

L3: Day 58 (Wensum Park)

Swans gather by the park. A grandfather with the little ones of his family distributing bread. Ducks and gulls collect on the water, not forgetting sparrows on the river bank. Sparrows, love ’em!
