founded by Swedish-Italian immigrants. somehow the town is big enough to have an east side/west side rivalry. nitt witt home is also located here, you may have heard about it by artist Art Beal [1896-1992] started in 1928. i guess you could schedule tours with its current caretakers, but we just took pictures.
spent the morning on Friday in the city. had a great breakfast at Linn’s. they ollaberry jam was insanely good. I had French toast baguettes & N had eggs, pancake & sausage. we split a delicious scone too, good coffee too!
both nites we ordered take-out from JJ’s pizza. it was really good. after nite 1 I knew exactly what I wanted on nite 2 and ate it in about 30 minutes. N had salads…a different one each time. wanted to give them a shout-out.
motel we stayed at was nice. only fault- they said it was super quiet when we checked in & that was NOT true. you may have read about nite #1 from the earlier post but nite #2 was better! better meaning louder & less sleep achieved. i took 2 flexeril to plan ahead but still was awoken by the other “guests” who treated the parking lot like the local playground (kids running everywhere at 1am) or 7-11 (cars in & out all nite, loudly—I mean the town closes at 9pm!! where are they going?). N was pissed of course since he hadn’t taken a muscle relaxer…shoulda coulda. I would wake up to a dying smoke alarm any nite over rude people. all I have to do to shut up the alarm was take out the battery, if only it were always that easy …
