Furnishing the apartment 1

We landed at Cape Town airport at 9am to be met by Ronel of Percy Tours. By 10am we were in Tafelberg Furniture at Somerset West looking at beds. Having bought two queen size beds and bedding it was off to Hermanus and the estate agent to pick up the keys.

At the apartment it was a case of drop off the luggage and into town to buy the bed linen. Then back to the apartment to take delivery of the beds. Impressive same day customer service.

Then it was back into Hermanus to buy a kettle and a fridge for delivery the following morning at 9am. By then the shops were closing so it was back home to make our bed.

We drove into town for a meal in the fish restaurant at The Marine Hotel; the first place we dined on our first visit to Hermanus. Then home to fall knackered into bed.

Not another apartment but the same as I wrote about earlier. Look at my posting of 24-Jan-08 or click on labels: southafrica and look at the posting preceeding this one. We made the offer to buy when we were here at christmas and it has just become ours hence this trip.

Congrats! I remember the post, but not of your actual purchasing the place! How very exciting. Such the globe trotters, you two!
