There’s no doubt its absolutely murder being stuck in but I have a lovely view from my sitting room window. The Sun had reached its highest point and I was sitting inside with the fan blowing at full speed when some groups of teenagers past the house and cycled uphill – They were grouped boys first then a few moments later the girls. I laughed and said to Martin, “I bet they are breaking lockdown to go and cool off at the waterfall (I’ve never seen), If I was there age I would probably be doing that too.”
I didn’t give them another thought but a few hours later I saw them coming back, a boy first and then a girl. Her long hair looked wet, and again, I laughed to myself and thought bet they’ve been skinny dipping.
The boy reached the bottom of the hill and he waited for the girl. Confession…I couldn’t resist it I had to go to my window to get the best angle to be able to see them. She stopped beside him – he was facing uphill, she was facing downhill. They chatted (sorry couldn’t see or hear what they were saying). He was taller than she was. As they spoke she was looking up at him, and then he placed his hands either side of her face and kissed her on the lips. It was just so lovely to watch memories that would last a lifetime being made and they will think back in years to come of that day. The day they broke the lockdown rules and went skinny dipping at a waterfall and fell in love.
It might be an awful time but precious memories will be made and looked back on fondly.
