Signs of Our Times - A Piece of History

Signs of Our Times

The Coronavirus - A Piece of History

Practice Social Distancing signage in Carlsbad Village

 

No doubt we are seeing a bit of history right now in terms of the coronavirus pandemic, and the impact on each and every one of our lives, in more ways than we can fathom.

 

Closed Except for Carryout at Cicciotti's Trattoria Italiana

Restaurant closed except for carryout

 

I took a short drive yesterday afternoon - I only got out of my car to photograph the empty beach (beaches are closed) - and the signs of our times were everywhere. I have never seen our charming seaside town this deserted, with so many closed retailers and restaurants. You can virtually park anywhere you want.

 

On a side note many restaurants in Carlsbad are open for carryout and/or deliveries - there's an interactive map on the City of Carlsbad website (today's count is up to 92). We tried a fav of ours the other night (above photo) - a little eerie to walk in to pick up the order and the place was completely empty.

 

Closed sign at the artists Foundry at New Village Arts

 

There were lots of people out walking, especially along the concrete boardwalk, but the beach (it's closed - not something that's happened in the 15 years I have lived here) was totally deserted...something I have never seen before, even in the dead of winter...and no surfers whatsoever.

 

 

History in the making, in more ways than one. How will we look back on this time?!
