These two Twilight fans are visiting Forks from Alberta, Canada.
We met up with them at the Visitors' Center.
They even brought their own "Edward" along.
Parked next to Bella's truck.
They call themselves "Dorks in Forks," and are doing a blog on Facebook.
I quote the fork:
"VISIT US ON FACEBOOK @ DORKS IN FORKS"
They were giving these forks out, and asking people to sign their shirts. Generally, just having a great time! Nice job, ladies. There was one interestingly silly thing: the decorations on the car prevent the doors from opening. To get in and out of the car, they crawl in and out the back hatch. Oh, to be young again! We are so glad they came to visit! For more Forks "Twilight" information, go to the Chamber of Commerce link at the bottom of this blog. We have Twilight tours, trivia and treats here in Forks!
For those who don't know, Forks is the main setting for a set of books by Stephenie Meyer. The first book in the four-book series is "Twilight." The movie based on the first book is opening this Friday, the 21st, around the nation, though not here in Forks, as we don't have a theater. The four-book series has been on the USA Today booklist in the top 7 for the last 6 months, at least. They are currently the top four books on the list. For more information on the series, please see Stephenie Meyer's website at: http://www.stepheniemeyer.com/index.html .
Can't let a little rain stop the mowing, can we? This is one of the big tractor mowers you see keeping the road edge clear.
If we stopped doing whatever we're supposed to be doing just because of rain, we wouldn't get much done around here... We've gotten over 10 inches in the last few days and we're expecting another round of heavy rain the next couple of days. The rivers are high and getting higher.
The rainfall for the year is at 75 inches I think. Doesn't quite sound like enough, yet. We get an average of 10 FEET each year, so, we're running a little dry - for us.
The Roosevelt elk are back to visit in the field across the street. We see them there in the early morning, waking up and starting to head out. They start moving out as the sun starts to rise, and are almost out of the field by the time it's light enough to get a picture. They are big enough for me NOT to get close enough for a flash to work in the dark. Majesty is a good word for these beautiful creatures.
About Forks and the West End of the Olympic Peninsula
Forks is the most northwestern city in the contiguous United States of America, on the Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington. The West End of the peninsula has beautiful forests, beaches, rivers, mountains, and the only temperate rainforests in North America. It just doesn't get any better than here!
