An urgent warning was issued to all residents of our fair community by our Mayor, yesterday, via Facebook.
He gave stern instructions that, if we were to see certain people, we should NOT CONFRONT them, but rather we should report them immediately to our local police detachment.
Who are these dangerous people ?
They are tourists !
How the world has changed. In past summers, we have welcomed thousands of visitors. They are attracted to the natural beauty here, the friendly people, and the slow pace of life. This year, all tourism is closed.
Many homes, including ours, are historic, and have been carefully restored.
Life here is reminiscent of 1920, but with modern technology.
I will miss the enthusiasm and the joy that our visitors bring each year.
We cannot, of course, understand why God has allowed this pandemic to develop.
Only in hindsight will we learn how the world changed during this trial.
