After I met my husband, we decided to move to Washington state and that’s where we’ve been raising our family ever since. We love living in this great state! I guess that makes me a Washington girl now…
Twilight fans always ask me how close I am to Forks, and while I am relatively close, it’s still a 4 hour drive & a ferry away. But the woods and the overcast skies in the book/movie are a dead ringer for where I live! It’s very accurate.
Just last week my husband, our daughter, and I went for a little scenic drive on some back roads on our way to another city near us. There were tons of trailheads right off the road marking hiking trails and scenic viewpoints overlooking The Sound. Even though it was a cool, drizzly 40-something degrees we still enjoyed the sights and went for a little walk through the woods.
The trail took us to a little cliff overlooking the Sound- that’s the Pacific Ocean behind us.
Hiking back up the trail to the road.
Having fun on our adventure!
It was so quiet out there in the woods. It was really peaceful. I can’t wait to go back with Ayden (he was at school this day) on a sunny day when it’s a tad warmer out.
This was the same area last summer, just down on the beach.
Those are islands out there. So pretty on clear days.
If you’re ever in my neck of the woods, make sure to come say hi!
Maybe we can find some vampires or werewolves next time.
