    VOTE: April 2020 Non-Diving Photo Competition - COVID: changes to my everyday life

    Here's the poll - running until Wednesday mid afternoon. Thanks to everyone who entered* - it's interesting to get such different takes on people's lockdown worlds.

    *The absence of photos from those who have demanded them in everyone else's threads has been duly noted.

    Countless shops closed. Restaurants closed whilst some are just doing home delivery.

    It is not like everyone is at home. The tourists left. The hotel and shop workers have left.

    No sound of daily water aerobics, no beat of the music drifting in the wind at night from the marina, no aircraft.

    Looking in the other direction out to sea, no white dive boats moored at the reefs.

    Just the beautiful sound of bird song and the wind rustling the palm trees

    Oh, and the bookcase in the corner alcove and the long shelf on the back wall.

    The irony of the name is not lost on me. But we try.

    So it's a tie - do I make the verdict here? If so, then although Finless' photo is a succinct snapshot of his life since lockdown, I must award the win to Pete for his magnificent woodwork. Well done Pete - over to you!
