Some Velvet Morning When I'm Straight
It was this photo found here this morning that got me thinking back to the Safari Inn. Not a place I've stayed at, but a place I definitely would. I have a thing for these old school motels and the time they belong to - the 1960's. When Lucinda Williams was working on her album WEST, she stayed at the Safari Inn. Of course she did. I imagine her listening to Frank Sinatra or old Lee Hazelwood in early mornings or late at night.
It also reminded me of the motel in Bottle Rocket. The Windmill Inn somewhere in Texas.
It's no wonder I'm lovin Vancouver's classic Waldorf Hotel.
