The Bridge Street Inn scene through the photographic eye of Linda Kessler

When I opened the Bridge Street Inn e-mail I was pleasantly surprised.  Linda Kessler, a professional fine arts pregnancy, baby, children, and family portrait photographer sent some photos she had taken while staying at the Bridge Street Inn.  Linda’s work has been show cased many places including Pregnancy Magazine. Check out Linda’s portfolio at her website Focus Pocus.   Thank you Linda!!!

Morro Bay Kite Festival

When a Bridge Street Inn guest asks about the local kite scene I tell them to plan an afternoon trip to Morro Bay.  The community of Morro Bay is serious about kites.  They throw the biggest kite party on the Central Coast.

Here’s a link to learn more about the Morro Bay Kite Festival held the last weekend in April.  http://www.morrobaykitefestival.org

Stay at the BSI.  Make a reservation for 2014.  http://www.bridgestreetinncambria.com

New Bridge Street Inn postcard designed by artist Kait Beck

Artist bio:

Kaitlyn graduated with a BA in Liberal arts from Malone University in 2011, with concentrations in Art, Communications, and Theology. She developed her painting portfolio while at Malone. The theme of her thesis was portraits of buildings, and the mood achieved by various structures. She also spent two years at the Cleveland Institute of Art in the sculpture department making works that focused primarily on form.

Kaitlyn has been apart of two group shows, “Man-Icon” in the summer of 2011 and “5×5” in the fall and winter of 2011. She has since been active with commission and various independent design projects. While interning at the Bridge Street Inn, she designed a postcard and sticker for the hostel’s promotional purposes.

Special thanks to Jackie Krokar for her assistance in the graphic design aspects.
