The Red Chair Travels spent quite a bit of time with the innkeepers and their family at Seahurst Beach located just minutes from The Guest House Bed and Breakfast. Red loved joining the kids looking for creatures, cool rocks, or really anything interesting. After a little while Red decided to take a break with the other chairs and swap stories of all of their adventures while they watched the ferries pass by Seahurst Beach. Towards the end of the day Red spent a little time wandering and reflecting back on the day and all of the fun it has had while visiting the Guest House Bed and Breakfast in Seattle Washington.. With so many new friends and fun adventures this visit will be hard to forget!
Why it is the Red Chair Travels and its tour guide Philip of course! Philip the resident tour pup from the 9 Cranes Inn wanted to make sure Red got the chance to experience the folktale in person. While Philip was explaining the coincidental incidents surrounding the Fremont Troll and the Aurora Avenue Bridge that it resides under, Red felt as if it might be watching them with its metal eye... The artists encourage people to interact with this gigantic 18 foot concrete structure, as long as they are respectful of course. It was such a unique attraction and the details were incredible, down to the crushed VW Beetle in its left hand!
The Red Chair got a chance to check out the Washington State Capitol Campus and also the really fun water fountain that sits on campus at the Heritage Park with the innkeepers of the Swantown Inn B&B! This beautiful and active building is the centerpiece of the five historic buildings on the campus. The "water jets" were a completely different story! Red saw some kids running through the fountain and decided it wanted in on the action. Waiting patiently for the stream to begin from the hole Red chose, it sat and waiting until finally (only a few seconds passed) it erupted! Such a fun day exploring the capitol.
Bell's View in the Cape Disappointment State Park, is one of the prettiest lookouts in the State of Washington! From this vantage point you can see the glorious view of the 28 mile-long Long Beach Peninsula (and on a clear day, the Olympic Mountain Range can be seen in the distance, north of the peninsula.) Obviously Red being the big lighthouse fan that it is wanted to check out the nearby North Head Lighthouse and Cape Disappointment lighthouses too. This immense park is one of five state parks on the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula. Cape D is the location of Maya Lin's Confluence Project that honors the local Chinook Indian Tribe encountered by Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery when they arrived at the Pacific Ocean. It was exciting for Red to learn that Clark and the Corps walked on what is now the Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn property on November 19th, 1805! One last little tip, make sure you check out the innkeeper's favorite spot, Waikiki Beach at Cape Disappointment State Park, Ilwaco, WA, you won’t regret it!
