So, here’s the thing . . . until today, we’ve been staying in what is essentially a vacation rental. Tomorrow, we’re in a rental with a lease.
Yes, this move to Hawai’i is sinking in . . . it’s actually happening; we have an address and stuff. Not much stuff, since we only mailed a little stuff, but stuff just the same.
So, we rented a partially furnished condo, only the very nice owners added more furniture than what was there already, and other than an eventual computer desk, we are essentially set for now.
Yes, more phone photos and a panorama, to boot. Click for a slightly larger view.
For instance, there was no bed when we first saw the unit, but they added one, complete with a new mattress and a dresser. Very nice of them.
This is the view down the hall on the left, showing the eating area, the washer and dryer, and the second bedroom . . .
The main bathroom is off-frame on the left.
This next shot is the living room (they added a television, saving us from having to buy one) and eating area. The kitchen is at the far end.
Speaking of the kitchen . . .
The appliances look new or nearly so. The view from the window above the sink is this . . .
You can’t see very well because of the screen, so let me step outside . . .
We are on the third floor and the complex is at 400ft elevation. In the distance, the Pride of America is back anchored in the bay.
The picture above shows the view from the bedroom. The place has an ample balcony . . .
. . . and, while we’re no longer oceanfront, we do have a view . . .
Up here, the temperatures run a ten or so degrees cooler than by the water. And yes, when it does get hot, we can still jump into a pool . . . not literally, even though it looks possible. We’re more likely to walk down to the salt-water pool.
The only drawback we see with this place is that we’re going to get used to the views and we’ll miss them when we buy a house. Maybe; we’ll see.
I’m keeping this post short because we’ve had a long day and I’m tired. Friday we start meeting with realtors. Today, our Highlander should have left San Diego and be on its way to meet us. My monitor is still en route, and I’m a bit apprehensive about its fate. We’ll see how it goes. I do hope it gets here by the time we’re scheduled to have the internet up and running (next Thursday).
Meanwhile . . .
. . . we feel our epic move is progressing along.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
