At the store, Dazzled by Twilight-- you can imagine what they sell

We all say this looks like I'm kneeling at the alter of Twilight








The REAL Cullen House. This home was for sale at the time SM was writing. She found this home listed online in Forks for sale and used it as the description for the house in the book. When she later visited Forks, she went to the Mormon church and asked if the house was still for sale. It had been sold, but she told people in Forks that was the home she modeled for the Cullen House. Its also in a location exactly as described-- you pass multiple bridges, crossing the Calawah River going about 14 miles out of town. Its not on the main tour because its out of town and the townspeople use a local B&B to represent the Cullen House in town

From the Lexicon -
Quote:
The location of the Cullen house is out beyond Forks itself, over the bridge at the Calawah River, from which point the road winds northwards. There is an unpaved road. It was unmarked, barely visible amongst the ferns, (TW15) that Edward takes to get to the house, and he drives through thick forest for a few miles (TW15) before the house becomes visible.
From the outside, there is a lawn or meadow, with six primordial cedars that shaded an entire acre with their vast sweep of branches (TW15) that ensure that shade stretches right up to the house.
The house itself is painted a soft, faded white, three stories tall, rectangular and well proportioned and it has a deep porch that wrapped around the first story. (TW15) Bella estimates it at around a hundred years old and describes it as timeless, graceful. (TW15) We are also told in the same chapter that the river can be heard close by.







You'll remember this sign from the movie-- they recreated it

The town is LITERALLY obsessed with Twilight. Everything, down to the food at stores, coffee, signs, posters, homes, everything is Twilight related

Shopping at Thriftway- its connected to the Outfitters, where Bella works (well worked before, you know)









They sell the books everywhere-- this is of course at the Thriftway, multiple times




Twilight food






And then we made Edward Cinnamon Rolls


I made this for the trip around town

Is this familiar?



The MAP-- locations from everyone that visits Forks, at the Visitors Center



We went into the woods to recreate scenes-- my dh is the absoloute best. He's very Team Jacob (in fact we have a half wolf/half Husky puppy now named Chief Jacob Vampire Killer, which he named before reading Breaking Dawn but whatever)


This is "Edward's" Leap and throwing tree trunks, recreating "As if you could out run me, As if you could fight me off"






I"ll have to tell him-- he cant read my mind




Clint forgot that, um Edward doesnt bite






Yes its JUST as SM describes it


Around Crystal lake, towards Port Angeles













My packing-- this was all I needed


Video entering Clallam County



Stopping at the Forks Port Angeles sign


Port Angeles Sign


Driving through town the first night, you can hear us crying and FREAKING out. Its kinda funny, you can tell we are incredible Twihard dorks. Shannon ended up buying an Edward Cutout, and had pictures taken with him in her wedding dress before her wedding. You would think we were in heaven watching this. Notice the song playing too


Searching for Red Apples in the Thriftway-- Shannon almost throws it at my foot to see if I have Edward reflexes




At the Outfitters-- looks like a camping store, huh!


Pulling up at the sign, the very first second we pulled into town

La Push Baby. Its-- La Push. We only went cause he stopped saying that


















Hmmmm Dogs in La Push!



Um we recreated the baseball scene-- this is my JASPER FACE!






You have to drink hot drinks from a paper bag


And eat Red Vines



Jacob's House-- they painted it after fans kept coming by




Hike to Second Beach to see Tidepools-- its a grueling hike and Bella never would have made it






I thought Second Beach was much prettier


Peering over rocks to the Tidepools




BONFIRE!!




Driftwood fires dont do as Mike described so we had to make it sparkle


Hmm Wonder who they support on the Rez?

Port Angeles



Boardwalk











I cried every single day of this trip-- Bella Italia is what did it this day


Clint is giving me the "you are insane" look


Laying out my movie tickets while we wait for food-- I ended up seeing it in theaters 18 times


Mushroom Ravioli



Umm "Edward" I'm out of coke. Give me yours








Searching for books about local tribes





I really am reading, this isnt posed






OK this one is posed-- trying to get the quote and his shirt at the same time





BWHAHAHAH!!!


THE alley






Got Clint to rescue me

The "Cullen" house in town, just a local B&B that lets them take tours and call it the Cullen House. Everyday "Esme" leaves a note to visitors

















On the plane, this cracked me up

Read it? I literally have no idea. I have about 5 copies of all the books, I lend them out often and have them all around the house. I have all the books on audio as well, and I listen to them on the way to and from work, so I listen to Twilight, go to New Moon... then after BD is over, I start back over

I've heard/read them at least over 100 times now and I dont think thats probably even accurate. I read in the bathtub every night, no matter which I"m listening to in the car, I have one in my purse at all times and read at the doctor. I dont know that I can count actual read throughs-- I just read or listen to random parts all the time

Yep thats me and Clint in Forks!

Michelle which is your favorite book? Fave character?

Breaking Dawn hands down for me

Jasper for male, Renesmee for female

It really is cheap to go there, I promise. I got a cheaper flight because Shan had a family connection in airlines, but the stay is super cheap. We had an old apartment converted to hotel so it had kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms, living room, like 1000 square feet for SO cheap

Almost everything you go see is free, renting a car is about it and thats not much if you split it

I know tons of people go in Sept for Stephenie Meyer day, of course for Bella's birthday. If you want to go then, I'm probably going and always looking to make it cheaper!

A few pics from last year


The Twilightmom and other fans gathering-- I saw this picture hanging in the visitors center too!




The visitors were also incredibly blessed to see a real Quileute ceremony, never allowed to be filmed before
