In contrast to the situation we had last weekend with crowds of visitors arriving for their ‘daily exercise’ on our beaches and in our parks Wales has finally taken the lockdown safeguards seriously.
Here are some images from around the Barry attractions this week.
BARRY ISLAND LOCKDOWN
Can you think of a time in history when the sun is shining and everything is shut on the Island?
Maybe on Christmas Day, but even then local families walk to the beach or drive around for a breath of fresh air!
Police patrol on foot, in cars and in vans to ensure the public are adhering to the governments new rules.
When you are out you should be following the rules for social distancing and staying at home.
Non essential travelling is also against the lockdown rules
You are allowed to leave your home for exercise each day.
Some made the most of this chance to get some fresh air and a break from their homes
The fairground was almost ready for the Easter Holidays but now is locked down with no idea when they will open again.
All the amusement arcades are silent and there is such a strange atmosphere which leaves you with a feeling of foreboding.
Even Marcos Cafe, which had seen crowds of people visit particularly since the Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special is empty and locked.
I am sure though many will watch the re-run of all series on TV while they are in lock down. What better way to keep your spirits up!
There was one message of hope in the sand on the beach where someone must be feeling a little more optimistic
Along the coast the situation was the same ….
COLD KNAP BARRY, CAR PARK CLOSED,
NO PARKING CONES LINE THE ROADS
When have you ever seen the Knap absolutely empty, not a car nor a person in sight.
You wouldn’t see it in the middle of Winter in a storm let alone on a sunny Spring afternoon.
Cafes and restaurants in the Knap closed until further notice
You will find the same situation in Watchtower Bay, no parking allowed and the footpaths and beaches can only be accessed by foot.
