Today we have with us the intrepid adventurer Cera C. She has just returned from Forks, Washington. Twilighters know exactly what I’m talking about. Before talk to Cera, let’s get in the mood. Click on photos to make them bigger.
Cera, what was your first thought when you entered Twilight?
That it looked just like the book. It looked just like Twilight. Stephanie Meyer did not skimp on the details.
Tell us what it felt like to be walking around in Bella and Edward’s forest. I understand that the forest was right outside your hotel room too.
There were mossy trees and they were gigantic. It was dark most of the time, though sometimes light would break through. The mountains are very steep.
Tell us about what is fun in the town of Forks.
We loved all the Twilight Shops especially “Dazzled by Twilight” and “Native Twilight.” They had everything you could imagine as a Twilight fan. http://dazzledbytwilight.com/
What kinds of things did you buy?
An apple that says Bella on it and I got a Lifeguard La Push hoodie in the Dazzled by Twilight store in Port Angeles. The one there and two in Forks. One of the ones in Forks is the most impressive because it has stars on the ceiling, big trees in the middle of the store, and murals and fountains.
Sully the Drive-in is the home of the Bella Burger. It has pineapple, swiss chesse, lettuce, tomato, ketchup and mayo on the burger. It was good. I got fried mushrooms with ranch dressing and Twilight juice.
What is Julia holding up?
Oh, that’s the Bella board where people leave messages for Bella. The town is very friendly and the stores all have written on their windows and door “Welcome, Twilighters.”
What was La Push like? Did you surf? I know you surf.
I understand there is a Swan House.
Yes, but it is a private residence. There are nice enough to let people take pictures.
Now here’s a collage of all of Cera’s photos. If you have any questions about Cera’s trip to Forks, please, ask them in the comment box.
