I love the isle of Mull- and the town of Tobermory is such a great little spot. It feels like you’re on the edge of the world. You’re secluded from everything, but you’re with the community at the same time. This is one of the places that I would consider moving to one day.
Today I had a lovely walk. I walked to the lighthouse that is about a mile and a half from the town. It’s a fantastic trail because it’s easy to hike, and it’s wide enough to where you could safely run if you felt the need.
When I got to the lighthouse, I explored around the shore for probably about 40 minutes. I then decided it was a little bit too cold, as I forgot to grab my hat and scarf back at the house. It was 41°, but with the windchill, to me, it felt like it was below freezing.
When I got back to the town, it was just about lunchtime. I decided to walk around and see if any of the restaurants were open in the wake of this coronavirus business. I tried to get a meal at a hotel restaurant that I’ve eaten at in the past. This is a restaurant that generally lets anyone dine- they even display their menu outside to draw in hungry people. I walked in and asked the lady at the front desk if the restaurant was serving lunch. this is how the conversation went…
Me: Hi- are you guys serving lunch in the restaurant?
Lady: Unfortunately, we are not open to the public today.
Me: Oh? Is this because of the coronavirus?
Me: So if I was staying here, then I could get some lunch?
Lady: That’s correct.
Me: So, the fact that I’m staying here would mean I’m less likely to have the coronavirus?
Me: Ok, well I tried, have a good day.
As luck would have it, the co-op was open, so I grabbed some groceries and went back to the house to cook.
