Betsy and Ann, with help from their GPS device, located a motel for us to stay overnight. The motel is in Lincoln City and is called the Historic Anchor Inn. It is not directly on the beach but it is a short walk from the motel to the beach. The Historic Anchor Inn is one of the most unusual, creative motels that I'd ever stayed at. For one thing, the rooms are more like suites than rooms. You get a bedroom, a bathroom, and a sitting room. Every room is decorated in a different theme. My room was called the Africa room. It had pictures of all sorts of places in Africa. There was a large model of an elephant on the floor. I was gleeful about the room. I took pictures everywhere. It was definitely not your typical hotel room. This space had lots of character.

The motel is a cross between a motel and a bed and breakfast. Breakfast is included in the cost of the meal. We had our choice between steak and eggs or a "signature strawberry crepe." Ann is not a fan of breakfast so she had a small bowl of fruit. Betsy and I enjoyed the signature strawberry crepe. It looked beautiful on the plate and it tasted even better than it looked.
The next morning, I looked out the window and saw two cats playing a chase game.
We left soon after breakfast, saying goodbye to the motel, the swirling sea, and the quirky charm of Lincoln City. It was a delight to be there...
... and to be in Oregon... It was a glorious week. I am most grateful to Betsy Lamb, Ann Havill, and Philip Randall for showing the sights and for making me feel at home. It was a wonderful week and I had a great time in Oregon.
