J F Kennedy Drive, New Providence, May 30, 2020

I ventured out Friday for the first time in ten weeks, except for walking for exercise in our immediate neighbourhood (could only do this Mondays to Fridays during curfews, as we have been completely locked down at weekends). Erskine has been our shopper and I have been the one who stayed at home.

He took me to look for a large umbrella in the pharmacy, to help protect me from the increasing heat of the sun when we go walking. As it happens, starting Tuesday, we'll be allowed to go further afield to walk, so we'll be able go to a shady area. The umbrella wasn't much use anyway!

It was as if I had been in a coma for a while and coming out of it, everything seemed to have changed! People in masks lining up outside food stores, anxious eyes everywhere. Yet, in the pharmacy one employee stocking a cooler wasn't wearing a mask. I felt uneasy and asked "shouldn't you be wearing a mask?" She didn't answer, but after a while reappeared with a mask hanging from one ear!

Then I followed Erskine into the food store, somewhat tenuously. It wasn't a pleasant experience, as I had to spend most of my time dodging people in the aisles, who didn't seem to care if they bumped into me!

I was actually glad to get home again!
