A first: watching dolphins frolicking, catching waves, diving into the Pacific ocean waters while Maroubra Beach is barren of swimmers and surfers. The upside of this pandemic is that nature returns.
Erroll and I hug and find great joy in watching these happy creatures return to the beach while our twins play in the sand. Both eat the sand as a kind of experiment which goes wrong. Neither will eat sand again. Guzzling water and Γιαγιά Dora’s κουλουράκια prove the perfect antidote to the grit of sand.
Meanwhile people keep their distance and Covid-19 still lurks.
