Or, I Walked In The Footsteps Of Vampires (Or So They Say)

Last summer, I was in Washington and visited Forks. It was so much fun! I’ve been a fan of vampires for a long time, and I couldn’t wait to visit the setting for Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series.

First, it’s very long drive from Seattle through some of the most beautiful, green forests I’ve ever seen.

The coast outside Forks, WA. Near the beaches Bella and Jacob strolled in the books.

Our first stop was the city’s visitor’s center (well worth the visit!).

Bella’s truck!

From there, we used the city’s handy map and found the Swan House.

Bella’s windows are on the 2nd floor.

Our third stop was Dr. Cullen’s office at the local hospital.

Finally, my favorite spot–the Cullen residence complete with a note from Esme! I was in fan heaven. 🙂

The Cullen House is a bed and breakfast.

Esme’s letter to friends and fans.

If you’re a fan of vampires, too, I highly recommend a trip to Forks. It’s a bit out of the way, but it’s like walking through the books. It’s well worth the drive. And the town, which saw a huge tourism uptick during the height of Twilight hysteria, could use a boost now that most people have moved on to new fandoms.

I had so much fun!

I'm not ashamed to say I cried at the end of this book, or that I read it in a single day because I couldn't stop.

The story started out a page tuner I could not put down, but by the middle I was skimming to the end just to see how it all wrapped up. I think the James' are wonderful storytellers, but this particular story didn't do it for me. I'd lov...
