Corona Lockdown Gratitude 🙏

#grateful for a good day, ending off in a surprise fashion; for it being cooler at 21C, and Lions Head covered, signaling the rain forecast for tomorrow; for a busy working day, posting for clients and finishing one of two client newsletters for April, but taking a lunch break walk to Camps Bay, also preparing my input for the Camps Bay & Clifton Ratepayers Association meeting I could not attend, clashing with a 18h00 event in the Waterfront; for another 2000 steps walked around the couch this Continue reading →

I was invited to try the 120-seater restaurant, which is a member of my Lockdown Sit-Down, Deliveries and Collection Facebook Group, for Lunch on Saturday, experiencing its Elevated Dining Restaurant and Bar.
