The World’s 50 Best Restaurants were announced and celebrated in London this evening.

The 20th anniversary of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants was also celebrated at the awards ceremony.

Last week the 2022 World’s 50 Best Restaurants ranked from 51 – 100 were announced. La Colombe climbed up the ladder to number 56, while Wolfgat dropped from number 50 down to number 90, a huge shock.

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a fabulous day, not only the 22 C sunny day, but also relaxed, getting all my work done; for a good night’s sleep, still not able to believe how quiet it is in our building 💙; for buying a stockpile of cat food, given the shortage of Whiskas, having to drive to Pick n Pay down the road, doing a monthly shop which I haven’t done in years, not doing it again in a hurry, with errors on their specials, it taking longer to do the refund than to take my payment 😱; for a walk to Bakoven; Continue reading →

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for the Blessing of this beautiful 24C ‘summer’ day, with a light breeze, being able to wear a summer dress; for our flat calm ocean after it being so wild and angry earlier this week; for meeting dear friend Jenny Stephens here for a walk and then spoilt with a coffee/tea and a croissant 🥐 at Maison J; for a flood of amazing messages received on Facebook about the Camps Bay clean-up yesterday, very humbling how it is appreciated; for meeting Facebook Friend Lynne Gordon near the Tidal Pool, singing my photography praises to her friend Linda Gawronsky, asking me to photograph them in the Tidal Pool, and promising a meet up, she saying that we are both optimists; for heaps of praise from a fellow walker, who said she knew it was I who created the transformation in Camps Bay yesterday after the storm; for having so much to be grateful for, with the company of my gorgeous Minsky, so at home here, and to be able to live in this fabulous Camps Bay; for bumping into a German family on my walk which I used to see at classical music concerts, what an amazing reunion ❤️, the cherry on my day; for an efficient and friendly shop at our Woolies; for Loadshedding having disappeared as quickly as it arrived; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
