Roadtrip 2011- Blue Swallow Motel in Tucamcari, New Mexico

LuluComment

The Blue Swallow Motel is probably the most well known of the vintage motels along Route 66 and rightly so- The Blue Swallow Motel neon sign, the neon piping along the tops of the buildings, the little blue swallows on the exterior walls and the neon fountain out front. The interior of the lobby and the rooms all have a great classic vintage feel to them and the owners are nice and very welcoming. During our journey along Route 66 we encountered a lot of European tourists. Their car of choice for driving Route 66 seemed to be a new Ford Mustang.

We talked with the older man who owns the Corvette pictured below. He had gone to Bowling Green, Kentucky where he picked up the car from the factory and was travelling along Route 66 back to his home in California...

This lady looks as though she has a double sided bosom...

Inside our room. I love the blue swallow chenille bedspread! If you want a Swallow Chenille Bedspread of your own you can purchase one over at The Vermont Country Store.
