Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Another lockdown birthday

Last year I posted about traveling on my birthday but never shared the pics, so here’s a selection of some pictures of past birthdays:

This year was the second Corona birthday and I was again in the Netherlands, however I still had an amazing time. The authorities are testing the opportunity of opening attractions for a limited number of persons with a negative covid tests, and as such, I managed to get tickets for a once in a lifetime experience: seeing Keukenhof with a limit to the amount of visitors. It was incredible to see the amazing gardens without busloads of tourists and just take in the beauty of it all. We could even take Rufus with us, and the weather was gorgeous for a fun day out!

The festivities didn’t end there, however, as the weather continued to be beautiful for an afternoon braai with some amazing people. And of course, no birthday is complete without tea and cake, like we had on Sunday with Marinus’s sweet family.

To top it all off, I was given the most amazing present by Marinus; a hand restored sewing table with a steam punk dynamo light!

Be kind. Stay safe.
