Well, sadly our Twilight tour is nearly at an end. We will spend the 4th of July celebrations here tomorrow and then we are off to pastures new! We’ve had such a wonderful time here in Forks.
Yesterday, I told you how Eric had proposed to Cindy here in ‘The Cullen House’ and today I have a picture of the happy couple.
Also, I posted a picture yesterday of Megan, Adam and Ali but Abi was missing …………… I think she was off in search of Edward!! Anyway, we caught up with her this morning so I thought it was important to post another photo just so that she didn’t feel left out.
After another visit to Twilight Central to pick up a few Twilight things I missed first time around, we headed out to Ruby Beach. Alas, when we decide to visit the beaches to take photos the sun heads in the opposite direction and so it was this morning. It was cloudy and only 60ºF when we left here but by this afternoon it had warmed up a little and the sun peeped its head through the clouds.
As seems to be the case with most of the beaches around this location, the beaches are full of driftwood or beach logs as they are also known. Some pieces are huge and the most magnificent shapes.
Beach logs are the bones of a rain forest picked clean by the sea. They begin in river valleys – giant conifers like Sitka spruce. When a day’s down pour adds to glacial melt the stream may rise six feet, undermining the bank and toppling trees into the flood, washing them down to the river mouth and beach. Some fall from eroding headlands and some of them are numbered and those trunks are strays from tug-pulled log-rafts.
On our way to La Push I noticed a sign we hadn’t seen before!!
After Ruby Beach we revisited First Beach at La Push as I wanted to collect some sand, pebbles and some very tiny driftwood as a remembrance of our time here.
