Sunshine on a Cloudy Day with Guests and Friends of Boreas Inn, Long Beach, Washington
June 2, 2012 by: Susan Goldsmith
It is the unexpected brilliant sunny days when the forecast is semi-dreary that make living on the Long Beach Washington Peninsula so interesting and wonderful. We chose today to have a Puppy and Pizza Celebration at Cape Disappointment State Park at Waikiki Beach’s Serious Pizza with our friend and long-time guest Odell Hathaway, who has a new therapy/assistance dog, Phoenix. Boreas Inn welcomes assistance dogs and we are getting to know Phoenix, the puppy, who will within two years, be a fully trained assistance dog. Odell has a couple of health issues that have the potential to require Phoenix’s help. In the meanwhile, this puppy, who Odell found through Oregon Assistance Dogs, is a gem of a baby golden retriever. At 15 pounds, she is a bundle of love and she is oh so soft and sweet. Odell is very lucky to have found her and for a dog, you could do far worse than have Odell as a parent! Phoenix will have all the best of everything, including fine parenting! We invited Skyler and Allen from Tangly Cottage Gardening and Jessica and Chris Miller to the celebration. They are our dear friends who know Odell from his many trips to Boreas. We ate world-class pizza at Serious Pizza–many pizza’s as a matter of fact! Jim and Chi make the best cherry and apple wood-fired pizza on the planet and we sampled four different pizza’s at the park. So it was a perfect day at the best park in Washington State, eating the best pizza at Serious Pizza with some of the best folks we know!
