So when I left off we were at the high school. From there we headed to the police station. There was a mom and daughter that we had met earlier at the visitor center that we kept running into throughout our tour. They were nice enough to take this picture. I'm sure they were a little weirded out at first, but after they took our pic they posed for the same one. hahaha... this might be my fav picture from the trip. Have I said that before?
This is the sign in front of the police station/city hall. Mike had told us earlier that the police chief had been called Chief Swan so often, he now answers to it. We were trying to look shady as we walked around so that a police officer would come out and we could take a pic with them... but apparently they've seen our kind before. I did have to pee really bad at this point and I debated going in, but didn't happen. Also, on my life list is to get arrested... so I thought this would be a great addition to our story, but I chickened out. Plus, I didn't even know what I would do that would have no fines and could get me released within 4 hours. So, didn't get to check that off the list this trip.
Next stop was the Cullen house. It is literally next door to the police station and not hidden at all and no woods around it, no drive way... really nothing that would make you think it was the Cullen house besides I think it's the nicest house their... which really doesn't say too much. It's actually a Bed and Breakfast and the mother and daughter we had been running into were staying there. We were so jealous.
The Innkeeper leaves a note on the door everyday about what the Cullens are doing that day, so that is what this picture is.
After the Cullen house we were starving and headed to Sully's so Laura could get a Bella Burger. I don't eat beef and neither does Jess, so Laura was alone in her adventure unfortunately. I didn't think to ask if they would do it with chicken until after I had ordered. Boo. Anyway, it was your typical greasy spoon. Really yummy stuff and the Bella Burger came with a pair of vampire teeth!! Laura was nice enough to ask if we could all have a pair and they obliged. There was a photo booth there and we took some amazing pics. I still have to scan them in, then I will post them.
What can I really say? <>insert laughter here<>
We took a break from the tour and did some shopping. We went to all the tourist shops and looked at all the Twilight loot. Of course shopping didn't mean we still weren't being creepy twilighters. hahaha I found a few shirts and sweaters that were ok, but I was still holding out for the perfect one. I was a little too cautious and ended up walking away with nothing! I did buy a pen and a coupe postcards for a select few that prob haven't received them yet since they are still sitting on my table.
There was an ice cream/sweet shop that we went to that had these awesome tags. We all decided to get one. Mine said "Twilight Visitor". These are the ones Jess and Laura got. I also got a box of chocolates with vampire teeth on them and some wax candy vampire teeth as a souviner for Lo. This was the store that gave us the hardest time for being Twilighters.
That was the end of our Forks tour, but it wasn't over yet! Next stop was LaPush!!
She's pushing me... get it???
We went straight to First Beach in LaPush. It was GORGEOUS! One of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen. I wanted so badly to rent a cabin and stay for the night. Someday I will. We stayed for a while just absorbing the amazing scenery.
Thought maybe these were wolf prints. hehehe
We were in LaPush, but we represented Team Edward!
Then we saw this carved into a fallen tree. Of course I managed to swipe a piece of driftwood, hahaha. I stole a couple of the smooth rocks for Lo too. She digs rocks.
So that was it, that was our trip. If anyone has the chance to go, I highly recommend it. I'm sure it will all fade away eventually, but definitely not until all the movies are over and done with. That could be years! Next time Amy or mom come up, we are definitely going! Thanks Jess and Laura for seriously making it one of the funnest days of my life. I haven't laughed that hard and so frequently in years! It was great!
