Trip South

A Notable Inn

A Notable Inn

A few of the Quimper Hittys went on an expedition to Oregon last week…After a ferry ride and a long drive, the human stopped overnight in Port Townsend at this splendid old Bed and Breakfast.

The girls decided this feature was designed just for them!

The Hittys all enjoyed staying in the lovely old building, and the human enjoyed the break in travel, the pleasant proprietors Sue and Ron, and the delicious breakfast. Click Quimper Inn for a link to this very fine establishment.

 

Smoky Sunset

Smoky Sunset

Because of forest fires in Washington State and Oregon, the views on the road south were somewhat obscured by a terrible smoky haze. The darkness extended even to the rocky promontory at our destination, but it did make for a very pretty pink sunset!

For the next few days, while the human dulled her carving knives on lumps of olive wood, the Quimper Hittys entertained themselves by clambering around on the furniture…

We had a lovely time, and thanks to the generous kindness of our host and patient tutelage of our teacher, a new girl came home with us.

  1. what a perfect inn for you and the girls. And a new addition to the cupboard!!! how exciting…olive wood eh?? And are those fancy shoulder joints I spy??? can’t wait to meet her!!

  2. I adore the “almost home” picture. Aside from being a favorite slogan of mine, this is a fabulous picture of the new girl in her trademark pose.

    • I imagine you can sympathise with the almost home feeling quite often. I am glad you liked the picture – she was a breathing the fresh air, and anticipating the Hitty cupboard and meeting some new friends.
