Fond memories of the rainiest place

Who knew? Stephenie Meyer selected Forks for her Twilight vampire series after Googling it as the rainiest place in the US http://bit.ly/9wswOE

Which makes me especially blessed to have enjoyed a week of excellent weather when I stayed at La Push on the Olympic Peninsula last March

It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been; huge, thunderous waves, vast trees hurled up on the beach, whales spouting just offshore, otters, eagles, sunsets to die for and a solitude that’s hard to find nowadays.

While I’d like to see the Quileute people do well from the new-found celebrity of the area, I also hope the inclement weather helps maintain the tranquility and keeps the numbers of visitors manageable.

According to this New York Times piece the locals are getting the rough end of the stick: http://nyti.ms/bouf4q
