Corona Gratitude 🙏
#grateful for a lovely sunny 22C day; for a stay-at-home working day; for the day/night lights at the apartment block working again, at least on my side, after not doing so for almost a week; for a walk to Bakoven; for taking photographs of a French tourist group of 40 pax staying at the newkings boutique hotel and eating at Zest Restaurant this evening; for stopping in Camps Bay on my way home, taking a walk on the beach front, with lovely sunsets, seeing a brand new Marcels frozen yoghurt outlet but closed for the day, for a light shop at Woolworths, for walking past the new Cause Effect Bar below the Bay Hotel; for Daily Maverick selecting one of my Bakoven cloud pics to post last week; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙
My Blogpost today was a Review of the new Shoreditch House Restaurant at the reopened The Winchester 😱
A new Nigerian checked in at EbbTide apartment 201 today, the apartment of Sacha Jack. I saw them in the garage, and went to say hello and gave them a warning about noise disturbance, which I had to endure from two apartments (101 and 201) last night. They glared at me, not interested in any niceties, looking intimidatingly big and unfriendly. 😡😡😡😡

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