... next stop, which has the most amazing emerald blue water, if we had more time we would definitely have stopped longer here.
Much to my delight, we arrived in Forks, Washington. For those of you that have not read the Twilight books, (basically most or all of the males reading the blog), this is where the stories are set.
Forks, is a really small town with really not much here but still has the odd gift ...
... an inlet on a river, a creek in a marsh or tide flat.” Well, that’s exactly what it was, good work Webster. Nailed it. So I went through lots of those, it was really pretty and it’s always interesting light for photos in the morning hours.

So far the weather has really been holding up for us....sunny skies with temperatures in the mid to high 60s. Can't beat that considering DC is having temperatures in the 100s. Yep,we got lucky.
More later as we start our trek ...
