Our Pilgrimage to Forks: La Push Baby...

This post is written by the incomparable Jen.

I cannot tell you how much we were all looking forward to actually seeing 1st beach.  It was a short, scenic drive from Forks.  The anticipation was killing me. I was hoping we’d see some hot, half naked, werewolf boys!  Okay, no, not really.  I prefer the sparkly, cold one.  But still!  We pulled into the sandy parking area, and saw some surfers gearing up to brave the cold water. 

As soon as we got out of the car, all three of us were in awe.  The beach was bordered by these enormous, beautiful, petrified trees.  The sand was dark and there was an ocean mist in the air.  The water was a deep blue.  It was absolutely breath taking.  

Walking along 1st beach was exhilarating.  It was so peaceful and quiet, except for the sound of the waves crashing.  Kim and I braved the cold water and walked through it until our feet were numb, while Shan took lots of pictures. 

I don’t know how long were out there, maybe a couple of hours.  It was so hard to leave though.  La Push beach is such a beautiful place.  We even saw some wolf tracks!
