Anson and I left the kids with family and headed up to Forks, WA Saturday morning. We had a nice drive enjoying the beauty of Washington state. Our main reason for the trip was to take pictures for a calendar that I'm working on. So when we saw a photo opportunity, we would pull over and take some pictures. There were a lot that we missed because there was nowhere to pull over, and we still had to make it to Forks before the sun went down to get a few pictures there are well. We pulled off the main road and walked down a pathway into tall, mossy trees. Anson and I wished we had more time to go explore because it really was beautiful and not something you see everyday.
We got to Forks and found that most of the hotels had no vacancy's. We ended up in a smelly, old motel room that had a double bed and single bed that Anson and I pushed together. The mint on the table was half unwrapped and there were crumbs of something left on the table as well.
After we checked in, we went down to Rialto Beach, watched the sun set and took some great pictures. It was really nice to be with Anson. It reminded me of when Anson and I first got together after his mission and talked as we watched the sun set in Pacific City on the Oregon Coast.
Later that night we went to a
Chinese restaurant there in town and the food there was delicious!
The service was great, the atmosphere was nice
and it was very inexpensive.
The next morning we drove around and took pictures of "Bella's and The Cullen's homes" and other places on the map you can get at the chamber.
Then on our drive home,
we stopped at a Ruby beach which was beautiful too.
