Our four day stay in Forks, WA pop.3500+8 1/2 vampires has been fun and very interesting. Stephanie Meyer of Phoenix, AZ put this town on the international map, it is the home of the fictional characters, Bella, Edward and Albert from the Twilight series. The town has enjoyed it's new popularity it just had it's 7 annual Stephanie/Bella birthday celebration which the author attended this year. The story came to her in a dream and she went to google to find the wettest, darkest place in the lower 48 to set her story in and it came up with Forks, it gets around 120 inches of rain a year.
But sadly and to the disappointment of the town the films were not made here but the first one in OR and the rest in Canada. I certainly have learned a lot about Twilight, guess I'll add the series to my already very long reading list.
Our first beach was Ruby Beach, the tide was out and the sun was out and we stayed to see if we could get a sunset photo, but no a cloud bank came in and blocked the sun as it was going down.
I am trying to download another beach we went to, but it won't let me. So I guess you won't get to see Rialto Beach.
So on down the road we go tomorrow.
