Toes wiggled in the sand!

For a few days last week I did escape to wiggle my toes in the sand by the Pacific Ocean.
The view here is from the deck just outside my room at the Sylvia Beach Hotel.
This is my all time favorite place to stay.
No phones, no television, and a cat by the name of Shelly in residence.
The Sylvia Beach Hotel is a historic hotel in Newport, Oregon,
actually Nye Beach to be exact.
I love parking my car here, enjoying the hotel, and walking on the beach
and in the neighborhood.
On the third floor is the reading room, where you can sit and read (nap)
and enjoy the quiet and the crackling fire.
On the bottom floor is where we enjoy breakfast with the others staying here
or maybe dinner as we are served family style.
At the dinner table often the game is played called "Two truths and a Lie".
Have you played it?
It is a great way to get acquainted with the others sitting around the table
and you meet the most interesting people here.

If you ever find yourself in this part of the world and you want a special
place to stay, just check out the Sylvia Beach Hotel here.

I will share more of my time at the beach and this special hotel this week.

What a wonderful place to stay at the coast. A couple of days at the beach is the best therapy in the world. I'm just tickled pink to have won your giveaway Marilyn. I will look forward to my sweet little heart and magazine issue. Thank you so very much.

I wonder if it is named for Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company? It looks divine and sounds like a perfect haven. I'm so glad you had a great time!

Oh, do share more! I can't wait to go there someday. The view of the lighthouse is fabulous - and mesmerizing. Did you see my gray-and-white photo of the same lighthouse taken from the north side of the cape? It was on a recent post. I'm ready to go back, check in and read by the fire!

Exciting to catch up here with this post, Marilyn. I keep a list of places I want to stay and then present it from time to time to Don. This place just went on my list.
