Real Life Setting Pictures for Cranberry Bay
on July 4, 2015
I’ve been spending a little time on the Oregon Coast and took a day-trip to the town which inspired my setting for my contemporary romance series set in my fictional town, Cranberry Bay. I thought it would be fun to share some of the pictures.
A festive July 4th scene outside the antique store which in the story is owned by Ivy and where the heroine and seventeen year old Maddie pick out vintage items for the cottage.
The park overlooking the bay where the hero and heroine have their first kiss and a picnic lunch from the town bakery.
The train depot where the hero’s friend Josh runs the old-fashioned train and gives holiday train rides.
The Creative Fabrics shop which in the story inspired the sewing shop where the heroine and her three friends meet to sew vintage aprons.
The Old Wheeler hotel which is the inspiration for the hotel which the character Gracie owns.
