Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a relatively cooler day, with a South Easter blustering this afternoon; for a very busy writing morning, posting for clients and a newsletter deadline coming up; for my visit to the dentist to remove a broken implant turning out to be better than I feared, he not getting the implant out but able to add a new one as well as a new bridge, without any pain, and no bill; for a scrambled egg and toast treat at the WCafe at the Waterfront, both the egg and service not being as good as usual 😱; for a Camps Bay Beachfront walk with a Gibson’s vanilla cone; for being lured into The 41 where Emma offered me a Pink Gin, just what I needed after a rough ten days🍹💙! ; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙
Alex and Patryk were lucky that Patryk’s coat in the boot of the rental car was not stolen when it was broken into whilst parked at Platteklip Gorge when they hiked up Table Mountain. .But Alex lost his sunglasses, powerbank and cash.

I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
