Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 2 of Level 3, 17 June 2021



Thursday 17 June 2021, Day 2 of Level 3 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a fabulous day; for a long sleep, with more deep sleep than I’ve had in ages, there being no disturbance at all, the noisy guests having checked out today 🧡🧡🧡; for getting work for my client meetings done; for the most wonderful rain overnight, during most of the day, and now again; for a good Anatoli meeting; followed by one with Utopia, doing a little winetasting, a red one, perfect for the weather; for meeting and interviewing the new Utopia Head Chef Dennis Luke, his wife working at Zest; for picking up some rolls at Kleinsky’s, and the lovely chocolate cake at Bokeh Creative Studio, both in Sea Point; for the lovely cameraderie at Zest, loving feeling part of the family, even though the doors haven’t opened 🧡🧡🧡; for a walk to Bakoven, lucky to miss the rain, bumping into Ashleigh Fleming, who lives nearby, who was walking her dogs; and for being happy, healthy, and free.

My Blogpost today was about the new Steak Club at The Lawns at the Rotunda in Camps Bay.

The Steak Club at The Lawns at the Roundhouse serves fine steaks, an elite and exclusive new pop-up Winter restaurant!

The first Zest fire was lit this afternoon, much of the cooking being done on a fire grill, using Kameeldoring wood. The sliding door dividing the restaurant and the event room next door has the most striking image, decorating both rooms when the doors are closed, chosen by Landy Walker, the restaurant and hotel interior designer. 👏👏👏👏

The Corona Virus Lockdown (Level 5), announced by our President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier to commence on 27 March and to continue until 16 April, subsequently extended to 30 April, lowered to Level 4 from 1 May, lowered to Level 3 from 1 June, lowered to Level 2 from 18 August, lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, and moved back to Adjusted Level 3 from 29 December,  extended to 15 February on 11 January, extended but relaxed on 1 February, and relaxed back to Level 1 on 1 March 2021, moved back to Adjusted Level 2 on 31 May, and moved back to level 3 on 16 June, is an unprecedented event in my lifetime. I am posting my daily Facebook post to journal this Corona Lockdown Journey, perhaps to serve as material for a future Book.
