Thursday 15th April
We made it to the land of Twilight - Vampire Territory - and boy am I excited!!
The road traveled (Highway 101) from San Francisco to St Helen's gave us some spectacular scenery.
After a quick check in at Best Western St Helen;s, , Wayne, Ash (reluctantly) and I went on an excursion to find some filming location of Twilight.
Bingo! We found Bella and Charlie's house; the Dress Shop (set in Port Angeles); The Thunderbird and Whale Bookstore; The Italian Restaurant (remember the Mushroom Raviolli?) and the scene where Edward confronts the bad boys in the car park and did a zippy 180 driving out - "distract me so I don't go back and rip their heads off!".
The area in St Helen's is very picturesque, with lots of little shops and cafes and reasonable sized marina. It is apparently the sister town to Bowral in our own Southern HIghlands.
I hope you enjoy the photos we captured and I only wish that you Twi-hards like me could experience this first hand yourself as this is something that I will always remember!
