Last night was comfortable in a small motel in Sweet Home, recently remodelled it said. I’m now fully conversant with ‘remodelled’, basically it means they have changed a light fitting and added a layer of paint. That said it had everything you needed for a nights sleep and a shower, was clean and inexpensive. We rose early found some breakfast and headed for the coast. Tonight we have a swanky room with a balcony overlooking the beach, a brew pub on the beach and a real coffee shop down stairs. Mostly we are happy to have a short day of travel, an opportunity to wash and dry clothes and relax in idyllic surroundings. Oregon is very nice, probably the nicest state so far in that it’s very different, has rivers, mountains, forests, coast and incredible roads which wind around stupendous beauty. It’s quieter and cooler than California too, but still has a nice eclectic vibe.
