The third national shutdown restricts people's movement to only going out for essential reasons, including exercise once a day.

Sadly, that means not everyone will be able to travel to see the wonderful sight of the Waterfront, where boats and yachts are docked and people can enjoy a scenic walking route along the river.

The sky was so bright with fiery colours, you could even see the reflection of the sunset in shop windows.

Sarah also took some pictures of the sun rising over Shingle Street - see them here.
