More from Tom  

By Tom Allin

We left the Porter Botanical Gardens late in the afternoon but I knew we had a relatively short drive to Hermanus and I had already selected a place to stay.  Google maps took us straight to the B & B I had selected the night before.  Drove up to the gate and went to the entrance speaker and spoke, then spoke again and again.  OK, I will use my phone and call – no answer.

The sun is beginning to set, in a new town for us, no place to stay – situation almost normal.

A couple blocks back from the B & B we are sitting in front of with the locked gate I saw a sign advertising a hotel.  Back to the sign, put the name of the hotel in Google maps, hit directions and we are on our way.

This was a situation that began semi-badly and ended up GREAT.  The 7 on Marine Hotel is one of our favorite hotels in all our travels.  We had the place to ourselves (thank you Covid) the next day after the only other guests checked out and what a beautiful place it is.
