New books featuring getaway ideas on the Oregon Coast have arrived at the inn!
Now our guests traveling north or south along the coast will have great stop-see-eat-and-stay ideas provided by our very own, North Bend author Kim Cooper Findling, whose new book arrived at the inn this morning!
The pages are stocked with adventures - where new visitors and longtime Oregon Coast residents will find exciting activities and lost secrets revealed along our coastal pockets!
A little footnote regarding Kim Cooper Kindling:
She went to school with me at Bangor Elementary here in North Bend, Oregon and I remember her being very kind and smart and outgoing and everyone in our class considered her a friend. Her father (Dr. Cooper) taught at our local Southwest Oregon Community College, which we'd call SWOCC.
Dr. Cooper would invite our classes on special field trips where he'd teach us about the flora and fauna native to our Oregon coast.
Years ago, I remember being in my kitchen in El Paso, Texas, washing dishes and listening to NPR. I think the show I was listening to was Fresh Air with Terry Gross...and being interviewed on NPR was an author talking about her new book, growing up in a small town on the Oregon Coast. The stories the author was sharing were not unlike those from my own sweet memories. When they were about to take a break in the show, the author's name is mentioned and I was like ohhhh my God, Kimberly Cooper? I went to school with her!
It may not seem like a big deal. But it warmed my heart. My parents and school and town helped make my childhood magical. And Kim and her father were part of that.

In this case, he is featured bringing bath towels to our guests!
