My family and I like to get out and about, and most weekend we can normally be found heading towards a Museum, Living History Event or Historic Building. However, in the UK a certain pesky virus stopped all that back in March. Since then, like everyone else, we've been confined to the house at the weekend. All that enforced 'free time' had to go somewhere and I channelled it into The Quarantined Wargamer videos I have been putting on my YouTube Channel. I never thought it would be five months before we finally got to visit another museum, but with Pubs prioritised over Museums (and schools) many of our favourite locations have only recently reopened their doors to the public. This week we finally got out of the house and have visited three museums (!) and while we were at one of them I made a little video to mark the occasion.
Rest assured this isn't the end of The Quarantined Wargamer. Sadly the risk from COVID-19 is a long way from being eradicated, and no-one knows if local lockdowns and other restrictions could be reimposed. So we are trying to make the most of it while we can, deliberately picking locations where we can enjoy some history, socially distanced from the hoards visiting beaches (and pubs).
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video. Next week I will be back in the Operations Room, and I'll be talking about how we learn new rules. Until then, stay safe and keep rolling high!
Very nice video Lee and interesting fort.ReplyDelete
We shot enough bits of video to have a 30 minute film...but in the end I decided short was better (I talk too much!).Delete
Sadly for us still don't feel safe enough for this sort of thing due to family memebrs being on the extremely clinically vulnerable list, so nice to be able to see this sort of stuff online:).ReplyDelete
I fully understand. My wife was shielding until recently. She's in the clinically vulnerable group (so increased risk rather than high risk) but has to return to work as a Teacher in a weeks time. These little trips out are her first to anywhere other than the occasional empty park, in months.Delete
