Room with a View

Astoria-Megler Bridge, Astoria, OregonJuly 5, 2010

This has to be one of the best views from any hotel in the U.S. We took a mini vacation without leaving town, and stayed the night at the Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites in Astoria. It was pleasant and comfortable, and if you don't have young kids with you who are likely to fall out, you can open the windows, even on the 4th floor. As you can imagine, this afforded a number of interesting photo ops. Stay tuned! The windows are not open in this photo because, although the next few days are expected to be hot, we hit a record low last night. It was actually cold with the windows open.

That's the Astoria-Megler Bridge, shown many times on this blog already. The river is the Columbia, and the hills four-point-something miles away are in Washington.

Wonderful. As a bridge-junkie, this directly appeals to my understanding of beauty. Thank you.

Lovely! And not a 'Goonie' in sight.

You don't have to go far to get a little change in perspective, do you? I could live with this view.

I didn't have Magritte in mind but Karel Thole, an obscure painter famous in Europe for his distinctive covers of Sci Fi books. Try this for an idea of his work: Karel Thole.
T read many of these books when I was young and treasured most of their covers.
