... into the game. Unlike yesterday, we watched a very (in)tense game. As we watched we couldn’t help but think of Claudio, who we knew was agonizing through every minute of the game (and penalty kicks). The good news is that Argentina won. The bad news is that Claudio is going to suffer for at least another 4 days.
The game ended at 4:00, at which point we hit the road again. We backtracked the first 20 miles or so and then resumed the route south. Our ...
... in civil amounts and at a pace in keeping with the harmonic balance of the festival - that, and with genuine consideration for your neighbour. Imagine that! How extremely unusual for Deanne and I NOT to see our folkie neighbours inebriated to the point of blacking out then next morning, while consuming a kilo of bacon and eggs, laughing about their obtuse behaviour that by daft default is forevermore passed into the personal (and often boring) annals of ...
... let a red corvette pass me by and spent the next couple hours looking for that shiny midlife crisis down the cliff side. After my knuckles turned a whiter shade of pale, I got mostly over feeling kind of sea sick, when we made it to the coast. And, although my eyes were open they might have just as well've been closed. Alas, no vestal virgins, surely not 16. You fans of Procol Harum will know exactly what I'm talking ...
... fuel economy is 18 to 19 mpg. Today for the first 100 miles...not so...closer to 15. The temperature was cool today, I wore a light coat and was glad for the heat coming through the floorboards and firewall. Jean wore two light coats and had a third covering her legs when she was up front. She completely dissapeared under a blanket when she crawled in back.

... detour bypasses the highway and takes you along back roads of Mount Vernon past peoples' houses and traffic is constant - bumper to bumper & just crawling along in both directions. I feel so sorry for the people living along there having to deal with all that until the bridge is rebuilt - which is meant to be by the end of Fall. Thankfully the rest of the trip was pretty uneventful (yay) and we arrived at Tulalip Casino around 3pm. I don't think we've ever been so glad to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Beachcomber Motel and Spa on the Beach Fort Bragg
My dog and I stayed here in early 04/05. It was affordable, clean, and comfortable, and practically right on the beach at the north end of Fort Bragg (a short drive from downtown). Although I'd expressed concern about the noise of the traffic on the nearby highway, the desk clerk said that it virtually stopped at 8 p.m. -- and it did. I slept well.
Don't waste your money - go somewhere else
Thought we were going for a nice family vacation but it was the weekend of disapointments. They lost our reservation for one of the nights, our fireplace didn't work and they only gave a partial credit, less than half of what I paid for the upgrade, the shower was marked wrong and we scalded ourselves, the beach was a hike down a cliff, and management didn't care that we were leaving 2 days early. It's over priced, run down, and they don't care.
We have travelled through much of Mexico with our son and decided it was time to see local sites. We made a 2 night reservation for the hotel based on photos and info from the Internet. What a disappointment when we finally arrived at the hotel. The hotel was not worth the high price that we paid. The continental breakfast was skimpy! The blankets had large holes and stains. No air conditioning meant you had to leave the sliding glass door open and risk being robbed or leave the bathroom window open and listen to the traffic from highway 1 and other guests walking along the wooden corridor. We didn't sleep for 2 nights!! We did have a nice view of the ocean; however, you had to walk/slide down a dirt hill to reach it. We didn't care for Fort Bragg and liked the hotel even less. We will never stay at the Beachcomber again! The best part of our trip was when we made a wrong turn on the drive home and discovered the cute town of Calistoga. For our next vacation, I think we'll return to Mexico where "beachfront" hotel has a totally different meaning and you actually get what you pay for.
Certainly not the best place I've stayed before. We had a two-night reservation but ended up cancelling our second night and going home the next day. Dated rooms. The motel is located on the ocean but set back and couldn't see the ocean too well from our lower level room. The only two places we found to eat dinner in Fort Bragg during the week were Denny's and Perko's -- we chose Perko's and it was decent. But we didn't want to eat at a coffee shop the next night also so another reason to only stay one night. And for some really strange reason, the sheets and towels smelled like they were washed in/near a coffee shop! They weren't fresh and clean smelling. Smelled of Perko's! The town looks like it's really feeling a bad economy, too, which was actually sad. Riding the Skunk Train and driving through the Drive-Thru tree in Leggett made the whole trip worthwhile!
Very nice beach motel.....gorgious views, walking path etc.
Beach motels and hotels usually scare me....sight unseen but, not this one. What a delight! We had the 2 room, 3 Queen suite with jack and jill bathroom, fireplace, balcony and beautiful views. There are walking/cycling paths and they take pets and even give you a "pet towel"! We're fairly picky but we would have no problem staying here again!
The 'Comber is a Great Place!
If you want to be able to walk to a secluded beach in 5 minutes, hang out with your dog, meet nice people, this is the place for you. Chicoans often go to Fort Bragg to get away from the Sacramento Valley heat, and the Beachcomber Motel is a great place to do it. You're close to Fort Bragg, Mac Kerricher State Park, Jenny's Giant Burger, Glass Beach, the Brew Pub, Eggheads, what more could you want? The motel has been owned by the same family for over 30 years, the rooms are clean, and the staff is friendly.
This ain't the Ritz, but if you want a hoity-toity atmosphere, stay in the village of Mendocino. The Beachcomber Motel will treat you like family and you'll go back again and again!
Great Ocean front location
Great beach front location and the clean rooms are fairly priced at the south end of the property. The breakfast of cereal, sweets, juice, and coffee is satisfactory and nice to take back to the room. The old lumber haul road is just out side and makes a great walk/bike trail up the coast. The beach below is fun to walk and explore and is priceless.
Bring a kite to fly on the beach. Sunsets are tops viewed outside or inside the room. Relax and stay a few days and get into the local seen.
Save your $$
A tired and rather expensive hotel, considering the area. Although it has some fresh upgrades, the facility is dated. We had a two day reservation that we terminated after one night. Save your $$ and stay at one of the many nice B&Bs...
Hotel on the Ocean
Just had a first visit to Ft. Bragg. Not too impressed. The town seems to be struggling. This hotel was recommended by a friend. It was on the beach and the rooms overlooked the ocean. It was a little noisy at night when we could hear the neighbors tv at 2:00 a.m. But if in that area again, would stay there.
This is a great place to stay. Just a bit north of FT. Bragg. Excellent views of the ocean from most of the rooms. The staff is friendly and efficient. Has a variety of rooms that are clean and well maintained.
