back to the bw browns & golds. our beachfront room.
another variation of bw housekeepers’ bedpillow compositions. lighthouse art

june 15 & 16. best western agate beach, newport, OR
a sleep over two nights. time to figure what 6 or 7 days into being 70 years old means to me, sloy, as the end of a 2,494 mile road trip to mark my 70th looms. it wasn’t all best westerns, but all were best.
green & white. mini bar/coffee biz buzzing fridge & dressing room just inside the door.
lighthouse art (check out the plank walkway). 2 historical lighthouses in newport, 1 can be seen from our room.
our lofty view from the balcony. lighthouse (squint into the far right, mid shot) beckoning our visit. fab lighthouse. vast, wondrous, weird beach.
as far as the eye could see, a sand structure installation. no two alike.
2 nights $326.94 (not counting 1 dinner & 2 breakfasts in the hotel’s restaurant/lounge)
july 3. best western cascadia inn, everett, WA
here it gets blurry. having to use pics from bestwestern.com. we are in everett to be with my father. it turns out for the last time.
essentially our room, kinda. to be truthful, much more spiffy looking than the real deal. a buzzing fridge/micro/sink/divider in our room very like this one.
view out our window. everett downtown in the distance. in the foreground a pool (our shot) & the long vacant repo-ed houses across the street.
we agree to break fast in downtown everett 2nd morning. need i say more?
inside this historical building still allowed to co-exist with the ever emerging new everett. plans were to bring dad here.
shot this, one of the repo houses seen out our window, as we walked by it before checking out. the derelict plans we lay.
2 nights cost: $200.16 (not including vintage cafe)
