The Red Chair was here!

The Red Chair was an honored guest of WildSpring Guest Habitat. We squired it around town to see the gorgeous sites on the westernmost edge of the 48 states. In its inimitable fashion, it will no doubt make its presence known everywhere it goes.

This journey started in 2011 on Cape Cod, and continues as the chair moves from one inn to the next as a treasured guest and new American icon.

At each stop, the Red Chair is introduced to all that is memorable and beautiful about the local area, with a B&B owner as the chair's concierge. To read more...

Red arrived February 2. Here are a few photos of our celebrity as he toured WildSpring and Port Orford. Winter had returned, after a warm sunny week, but the rain and mist let up from time so Red could admire the view and we could get some nice shots.

Red saw the storm leaving and couldn't resist taking a good look at Port Orford's famous dolly dock port
(on the right), where giant cranes lift our fishing boats into and out of the water. Red was very impressed.
We think the seagull was flirting shamlessly. Randy does it again.

And, the last thing Red wanted to do before leaving WildSpring was to spend some alone time by our open-air spa.

Red left for the Touvelle House Bed and Breakfast in Jacksonville, Oregon, on Feb 12 as he continues his tour of Oregon, thanks to the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild and

We're certain the seagull will find him there.
