Not so horsey

Back from a wonderful vacation with my best friend from high school. We "geeked" out and did a "Twilight Weekend" up in Forks, Washington. Twilight is a series of books written by Stephanie Meyer about vampires and werewolves living amongst humans in the Northern most tip of Washington. We both enjoyed the books and thought, "What the heck!" "Let's go check it out!" I would have never found La Push, Washington otherwise. What an amazing beach...I want to ride my horse there! I am not sure if you can "trailer in" on a reservation. I will have to do some research:-) The Quileute Indians supposedly descended from wolves, so Meyer based her werewolf stuff on the tribe. We did find lots of wolf-like tracks on the beach....interesting:-) For those that have read the books, we ate mushroom ravioli in Port Angeles, saw Bella's truck, went to see where Dr. Cullen worked, visited Forks high school, went to both the Cullen and Swan house, and even found the La Push/Forks Treaty line! Nerds...I know, but we had a great time. So good to catch up with my friend and feel like we were 15 again.

Looks like you and your friend had a wonderful time! I have never read the Twilight books but they sound interesting! Something to do as the days get shorter and the nights longer.
Beach does look like it needs you to ride your horse on, I think it's calling to you!! :-)

That is too funny! What a cool trip. I'm much more of a True Blood fan though:)

Haven't read the books, but am familiar with the concept. (Many of my students used them for book reports.)

Sometimes it's just fun to step out of your own world into another one for a while. Good for you to just go and "do it!"

I read the whole series at the urging of my daughter. And I loved it. What a great idea to take a little trip over there. I had to GoogleEarth it a few times while reading to see how far they were running.
Very nice to keep in touch with your buddy.
