People still traveling in hoards to the beach each day!

As I look out to a beach car park across from our home there are currently 6 vehicles, all with poeple happily having a lovely beach day out, at others expense. They are not using their vehicles for essential travel, they are not self isolating or doing their exercise close to home, otherwise they would be walking, running or biking to get to the beach. What a shame that people can’t control themselves for a few short weeks, for the good of us all and to help reduce the time lock down for ALL OF US! Great work to all the amazing people and families who are doing everything they can and should during this time : )
