Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 88 of Level 1, 17 December 2020



Thursday 17 December 2020, Day 88 of Level 1, Day 267 of Lockdown. 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a cooler day today, and the wind blowing most of the day, very strong now; for the Fire Services in fighting the fire which broke out in Upper Bakoven earlier this afternoon; for a good walk this morning through Bakoven with my cleaners Imtiaz and John, they still on a high after the accolades they received yesterday; for a busy working morning, stressing me somewhat, but the one hour Bakoven walk destressed me completely; for meeting my lovely American apartment neighbour Kay for the first time today, and happy to hear that she is staying for another two months, making no noise at all; for a good Status meeting with my client; for collecting some ordered foods at Hartlief in the Garden’s Centre; for being able to get back home despite Victoria Road having been closed because of the fire, no vehicles being able to travel in the direction of Llandudno; for a looong chat with my Alex ❤️; and for being happy and healthy. 💙🙏

My Blogpost today was about the heavy police presence in Camps Bay yesterday, and for Police Minister Cele closing down a film shoot in Camps Bay yesterday.

Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 87 of Level 1, 16 December 2020.

Town and Camps Bay were very quiet today, as if everyone has already left town for their holiday. So strange.

I did a second Bakoven walk to see the fire from closer up. It jumped across Victoria Road to the seaside of it, luckily with no houses nearby. The wind was pumping like crazy.

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, and lowered to Level 1 from 21 September, 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.
