Super super bored .....................

The number of people jogging and cycling is crazy!!!
And sitting together on towels, drinking beers or Starbucks or eating fast food on picnic tables, and even deploying tents on the beach. ](*,)

We're going to be locked down even more by Monday at this rate.

Beaches are closed. After seeing ECP on Friday evening it's easy to see why.

if you restrict entry or ban altogether open spaces except for a "window" (say 6-8 pm) then it's a stampede!

I still maintain that all parks, beaches, hills, reservoirs, etc. (aka open space) needs to remain fully open. Choke points aside, people are increasingly bunching where movement is restricted which counter productive.

For me, I go fishing alone in quiet spots along the beach (marina south pier for example). I am now being penalised due to the bad behaviour of a small minority.

Aside, off topic, we actually need more young people to catch the virus so we develop herd community (Proviso: protect/isolate the vulnerable).

if you are out there fishing, you are still vulnerable. You are as old as my avatar! LOL

Actually even when the beach (East Coast Park) was open, there was a large sign about what was and wasn't allowed. Fishing was specifically called out as not being allowed.
