JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 256 :: where the wild things go

13 Sep

Today I found out where the bears in this part of the country hibernate.

The Bear Hotel. 

The reason I went to The Bear Hotel was due to a special invite to the local AAUW Luncheon. I thought the luncheon was taking place at a HOTEL. You know, like a hotel restaurant, or dining room, or conference center.   But as I drove up the warehouse sort of space I was confused.

Was I lost?
Was in the right place?
Yes. According to the large sign that said… The Bear Hotel.

Which is a meeting center of sorts.  But it’s also the central resting place of The Bears. The ones that have dotted the streets here in Grants Pass all summer.

So this is where they are stored!
The Bear Hotel. 

They are HUGE bears too.
Just look at how much taller this one is (compared to my six foot frame in this fuzzy photo).

There are smaller ones… 

And Egyptian ones…

And footballs ones!

It made for a fun luncheon. Even though I missed the sign up sheet because I was walking around introducing myself to the bears.

Oh, and the Nutcracker Suite too…..

I’m not really sure how this relates to Peak Performance. But I will say this… The Bear Hotel is just further proof that big, hairy, audacious, goals are possible.

Even if it is building a hotel for some great, big bears.

More tomorrow.
