Thursday 1st October – Flippers

Coronavirus Lockdown Day 193

1,157 cases: 0 new, 4 active. Pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafés can now have double the number of patrons outdoors. Restrictions have also eased on theme parks, zoos and stadiums, while up to 1,000 people can attend outdoor events such as sports carnivals and school fêtes. The Queensland border zone has also expanded (Byron Bay is again included), and anyone in the border zone can now enter Queensland for any purpose. Border residents can apply for a border pass and travel around Queensland, and Queenslanders can travel to those places as well.

Flippers

Bronwen and I drove to BCF to buy some new flippers to replace the ones I broke in the surf at Stradbroke Island. I then dropped Bronwen off at her parents’ place, where she’s spending the night so as to go into work tomorrow.
