Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 17 of Level 1, 17 October 2021



Sunday 17 October 2021, Day 17 of Level 1 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a lovely winter weekend, raining overnight and on both mornings, ending off with a sunny 16C this afternoon but with a chill in the Southerly wind blowing; for a most relaxed day; for going to the Labia to see ‘Off the Rails’, travelling to Paris, Girona, Barcelona, and Palma in Mallorca, the closest I’ll get to travel overseas this year; for a quick shop at the Woolies at Lifestyle on Kloof, definitely not my favorite branch; for a Haagen-Dasz treat; for a Bakoven walk; for 2 fabulous Harvest Culture Eaterie (at Tyger Falls Waterfront) reviews on the Cape Town Restaurants: Good Bad & Nasty Facebook Group 💙💙; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

Well done to all the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon runners today.

The movie did not receive good reviews. Dame Judi Dench has a fleeting role. It must have been the last movie in which John Travolta’s late wife Kelly Preston starred, before passing away last year. The movie is dedicated to her at its close.

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