Sea Point Restaurants and Residents go out onto the street on Freedom Day!


Freedom Day is celebrated today with Restaurants on Regent Road going out onto the street, bringing their cuisine and beverages outside on a perfect weather day

An initiative of the City of Cape Town to get Capetonians back to the city, it follows similar previous events organised by the City on Bree Street and Long Street.

My friend Gary Peterson joined me on a walk along Regent Road, from Piazza da Luz up to Church Road, and back.  It was a wonderful opportunity to window shop, to shop for food as well as for clothing and other items sold by shopkeepers on the Festival strip.

Friday 25 February 2022, Day 148 of Level 1 😷

Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a warm day at 24C; for a working and writing morning; for booking my 2022 Discovery Health Check with DisChem for next week; for having the new spectacle script checked by optometrist Bernard Coppez, he being somewhat shocked that I’ve been driving without specs; for being delighted to hear that they offer a 20% discount for Discovery clients; for meeting a lovely lady at Coppez, possibly his wife, chatting to different clients in the shop, including me, saying she has seen me walking in Camps Bay on numerous occasions when she drives from Hout Bay to Sea Point, a fantastic ambassador; for surviving a 90 minute wait at Standard Bank Sea Point, to get a bank statement for the past year, the ATM only offering one going back for 6 months, not impressed to sit there until 16h30; for doing a retail therapy shop at Woolies at St John’s Piazza after that long wait, finding a perfect winter jacket and some food spoils; for spoiling myself with a scone, grated cheese and jam at WCafé .….. mmmmm 💙; for a sad/happy seeing of Celia Mauerberger as I walked past Frosted, for which she has been such an amazing ambassador ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️; for working on my return to home, going through a huge number of emails and messages; for a refreshing walk to the Tidal Pool, with a very strong wind; and for being happy, healthy and free. 🙏💙

The Sweet Service Award went to Bernard Coppez optometrists, and the Sour Service Award went to Discovery…. again 😱
