Looking for new friends anywhere

Good morning! I have been a member for some time but have never really made proper use of the site.

I have a partner but would like to make some new friends to 'chew the fat' with and put the world to rights. Happy to have contact with anyone, of any age, and especially those who have been distressed by the Covid-19 situation and perhaps feel lonely and isolated.

I am 71 years old, but relatively active (especially cerebrally) and live in south Devon, near the sea. I consider myself lucky to be doing so.

I am interested in many things; people, nature, dogs and cats (actually, animals in general I guess), walking, sightseeing, local history, politics, IT, literature, music (especially classical), food and cooking. Not keen on daytime TV, 'reality' TV, games shows, soaps, but enjoy good drama, some comedy, documentaries, science fiction.

My two main 'out of house' interests, supporting my local football team and concerts have both been (hopefully temporarily) killed by coronavirus. Kind regards, Peter
