Chillin’ On The River, Waiting For The Boys.

Stayed up too late watching cable television — now you know why I don’t have it at home (other than I’m cheap). Rolled out of bed around 9am, made some coffee, and went to sit on the porch and read yesterday’s paper. It’s a beautiful sunny day today.

Here is your little video tour of the place:

 Hopefully you won’t get seasick viewing the “fly-through” portion. So — now you have seen the Quillayute River Resort, come on down and stay a couple of nights.

I took a little run into town to see what this whole “Twilight” phenomenon is about. Apparently a lot of guests are now coming to Forks because of this vampire book that a nice Mormon lady wrote. Personally, I don’t get it, but, then, most people wouldn’t go out of their way to take a tour of the Airbus factory as I did in France several years ago. I’d never heard of Twilight so I had to look it up — which is when I found that it’s not just one book, but a series, and a movie, and a Kindle download…. for those (like me) no in the know about the plot-line, here is part of the Amazon review:

Bella Swan’s move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella’s life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear.

Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.

The boys are due to arrive in time for dinner — and it’s a beautiful day for them to be driving so they should be on time.
