Twelve months of Covid – June

June – and the weather is still good – cases of the virus are coming down, and we breathe a little. Zoom blooms with the flowers, and more and more meetings are being held on line. Our club settles into a routine of speakers, the odd competition and amazingly – lots of inspiration.

I’m seeing a good speaker sometimes twice a week, and I’m booking people for our own club – members are sending us money to do this, and standing orders are being set up. We find that we now have an informal Zoom director, treasurer and event booker….. most of the membership are coming to meetings twice a week, and the other parts of the club are slowly joining in too.

I start to get more zoom bookings to do talks, and judging – and it’s great to see people from all over the country. We even do some judging in Western Australia….. it’s incredible, and gives us some relief from the dreaded virus.

I’m able to get out a bit more and get some photography in – sometimes even with a friend now – though we are careful and go places in separate cars. The local woods start to look good, and then……

a mutual friend says they have a drone to sell…. do I want to go halves and buy it – so we do….. June got a bit more interesting, though we had no skills – still we both sat a CAA test, got registered, and went off to play out.

The bird hide was still in use though, and now the chicks are ready, and being fed…..

We are relaxing a bit – even the virus seems to be receding some……
