We are fortunate here in northern NY. I hear other places such as Novia Scotia have closed their beaches, but our beaches remain open. They are more crowded than usual, but people are doing a great job of keeping the minimum 6-foot distance. We take turns going through narrow passages on bridges and to parking lots, and we give wide berth while passing each other when groups are walking north and others are walking south.
It’s a great escape to get fresh air after house time and to see beautiful vistas and get some exercise. People are ramping up on creativity with natural elements, too.
I wanted to take a picture of that neat structure on my way back from my two-mile walk. Then I saw people building more things. It turned out that this family was making a tic-tac-toe board. So fun!
The tic-tac-toe reminded me of a Facebook idea I saw shared. This isn’t it, but it’s similar. If you want to expend some energy try driveway tic-tac-toe. You can do it with two people running back-and-forth, or grab a few family members and do a relay. You can use sticks to make the board (or brooms or whatever you want — even sheets) and use shirts or rags or plastic plates or anything you want for playing pieces:
