I like taking pictures from the airplane window. The country is so amazing.
After landing in Seattle we drove out to the Olympic Peninsula to Forks, WA. Some of you will instantly know what this place is famous for, but we did not see any vampires or wolves.
Forks reminded me very much of some of the small towns in interior Maine. The industry is logging. This is a small town where everyone goes to the high school football game on Friday night.
Go Spartans. And the next morning when you stop at the coffee shop at the Thriftway(the only grocery store) and people want to know what you thought about the game.
The Thriftway has everything you could possibly want. It was right down the street from where we stayed.
We opted for the non Twilight themed rooms. They were cheaper and I really didn't need a poster of Bella or Edward hanging above the bed. The Mocha Motion drive through was just 2 doors down and of the different places(including the original Starbucks) they served up the yummiest mochas and lattes of my trip.
I wish that I had planned at least another day to stay out here. It was very relaxing and so beautiful. The next post will be about our first hike in the area.
