Yesterday, 48 days of confinement ended. As from 6 a.m., people aged 14-69 were 
allowed out to take walks and exercise, as long as social distancing rules were 
respected, no swimming in the sea, when out running or cycling, stay within 
your municipality, respect the time slots (6-10 and 20-23) etc. So not complete 
freedom but vastly more than we have had for the past 7 weeks. So I got up at 6 
and by 8 I was on my bicycle, cycling towards the hills along the beach road:

After about 8 km, I was at the foothills—how I have missed going there! 
Exercising on a bike on rollers on my front porch has kept me in shape, but it 
cannot be compared with being out there in the landscape:

I cycled as far up as I was allowed to. Fortunately, El Campello is a fairly 
big municipality, so I was able to get within less than 2 km of Aigües and 
enjoy the view of Alicante from up there:

On my way back, I stopped in the fishing harbour. The boats were in and the 
fishermen were arranging the nets and whatnot:

There were some people on the beach, and a few contravened the prohibition 
against bathing, but in general people are respecting the restrictions. Nobody 
wants to risk a spike in infections and a new lockdown:

Today I cycled again in the morning, and in the evening I will go for a walk on 
the beach, just as I did last night.

Cheers,
Nathan
