FORKS, WA

The best part about going on a road trip is the unexpected. I stopped by the town of Forks, to stock up on groceries and to get ready for camping in Olympic National Park. As the cashier was ringing me up, the first thing that she said to me was, "Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?". I replied "Huh, come again?". She then said, "Today is Bella's birthday and the 10th year anniversary of the Twilight Saga. Stephanie Meyer, will be in town to do a book signing and the vampires and werewolves are coming out to play tonight." I said, "How cool!". I actually did read all the books in the series and saw the movies and somehow, the town of Forks should have come to mind, since that's where the book was based. From buying coconut water and some camp food at the grocery store that morning to being stoked about visiting the Cullen's house and checking out the town of Forks was pretty cool. Since this detour was unplanned and to be here during their 10th year anniversary was a once in a lifetime experience. I love the feeling of walking around a small town and seeing people get excited about things that are happening in their area. If you look at my first picture, that was a five hour long line that people were waiting in to enter the Rainforest Arts Center where Stephanie Meyer's was doing a free book signing. I didn't pre-register nor did I bring my books along. It was one of those I should have, could have moments, but to be there was more than enough.

Btw- if you're wondering, I'm Team Edward!
