Fingal Bay despite the Van and the Virus travel blog

Tue Mar 17 - Day 23

Reflecting back - Was it a great holiday? YES it certainly was. Lots of resting, reading, relaxing and reflecting in the writing of this blog.

Reflecting back - Anything Go Wrong? Nah! Nothing major. Just the door is damaged and won’t separate. The Air Conditioner doesn’t cool anymore. The awning is destroyed (probably hail damage) and has to be replaced. Nope! Nothing much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reflecting back - COVID-19 Pandemic and the ensuing panic. Even reflecting on the Media’s role in unnecessarily feeding the public’s worry and promoting public doubt in the Government’s handling of affairs - it brings the old saying to mind.

Our nations leaders are “damned if they do - and damned if they don’t”.


Andrew sent us a text welcoming us back but then said we really should stay away camping - we’d be better off. He thinks we should “Stay away from People”

We’d better make it sooner rather than later to get away from populated city centres which have lots of ‘Corona opportunities’!!!

Interesting Comment 22 -

“If you’re not ON holiday, then you should be planning one” quoting Ron’s brother Jim again who left us some great quotes 
when he returned to his Saviour Sept 2018

One Final comment . . . . . .

WHO SAID THE FOLLOWING . . . . . . . .

“Therefore, I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine, and take it.

I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance infect and pollute others, and so cause their death as a result of my negligence.

If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others.

If my neighbour needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person, but will go freely.”

Good hygiene, social distancing, take your medication, look out for others. Sounds very similar to government statements last week!

Can't guess?

It was Martin Luther. ‘Whether One May Flee from a Deadly Plague’ (published in 1527). Nothing new under the sun, 500 years later!

Till next time - stay safe, practice that "Social Distancing" and "Good Hygiene" - - - thanks for travelling with us. RnJ
