Corona Virus: Lockdown Journey Journal, Day 62 of Level 3, 1 August 2020.


Saturday 1 August 2020, Day 62 of Level 3, after 66 days of Levels 5 and 4 😷

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a beautiful 21C day, feeling like a sunny beach summer day, putting a spring into our steps; for surviving some tense hours as a cat mom, all ending well, with Michele Antelme assuring me that all would be good, and it was 😻; for breakfast with Jenny Stephens on top of Sea Point, enjoying sitting on the 9th floor terrace of Latitude Café; for buying the pair of Adidas shoes from Sportsman’s Warehouse that I had seen online, and for feeling like I’m floating on clouds, soooo comfortable; for spending my Discovery voucher on some Blood sugar test strips at DisChem; for popping into a busy Kleinsky’s to buy poppyseed bagels; for Jenny recommending that I buy a slice of apple tart at Baker Brothers in De Waterkant rather than at the nursery on Main Road in Sea Point, which led me to park outside Kong Grill & Bar, into which I was welcomed and spoilt like I was coming home, having danced there many an evening; for a walk through a very busy Camps Bay, some persons celebrating Eid here, I asking a lady if I could photograph her in her beautiful yellow dress; for rescuing a Woolworths trolley; for dancing to the Kfm Blok party; and for being happy and healthy 🙏💙 Continue reading →

Latitude Café sets new heights for casual dining on the Atlantic Seaboard!


I was invited by Latitude Events Manager Naledi  Molotlegi to experience the Latitude Café, which opened on the 9th floor of the Latitude ApartHotel on Regent Road in Sea Point in November 2019. It must be the highest restaurant on the Atlantic Seaboard, with beautiful views, and prides itself in being Proudly Cape Town.

Originally developed by the Berman Brothers Group, the building was very recently bought by 12Cape.  New owner Hugo Venter was at the Café, and reminded me that we had danced together at HQ some time ago.

Corona Gratitude 🙏

#Grateful for a beautiful sunshine day, with a nippy start, putting a lift into everyone’s step, and happy that we will have another 7 days of sunshine before the next rain arrives; for getting my writing done in good time; for being spoilt by a lunch invitation at Latitude Café in Sea Point, a lovely setting in the 9th floor on the Latitude ApartHotel, connecting with two acquaintances; for donating blood 🩸, Rita Rodrigues being the nicest staff member there, always a pleasure to give, for being offered tea and biscuits afterwards, and receiving a present; for the amazing generosity of Discovery Vitality today…. not often experienced; for picking up two desserts on the Pilcrow & Cleaver menu this week in town, and meeting owner Chef Judi Fourie, only having messaged each other up to now; for a walk through Camps Bay, no clearing up of storm debris done yet, so I’ve booked Joel for tomorrow so that we can start with clearing the pavements, so that locals can walk again; for a walk through Bakoven at sunset time; for missing out on Loadshedding today; and for being happy and healthy. 🙏💙 Continue reading →
