Haibun: Along the Firth

It has been a worrying weekend for many of us in the Highlands and other tourist destinations. Beauty spots in England, Wales and Scotland were swamped by visitors at a time when everyone has been asked to refrain from non-urgent travel.

This morning the caravan parks have closed and most people are returning home. They have better medical support there than they would have in remote parts of the country.

We can understand that people want to visit their favourite places. If we all work together to flatten the curve, this will soon be possible again.

Update: At 8.30 pm on 23rd March 2020 the UK Government ordered a lockdown in the interest of keeping everyone safe.

We hope you are all safe and well.

Wishing you a peaceful Monday and a beautiful new week,

with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
