Now, I know that not all of you or probably, even a great many of you, are into the Twilight series but **Breaking Dawn - Part 2** starts being shown at midnight in the theatres today (and the midnight showing is sold out) so what better place to go but on a Twilight Tour. Dress warmly.

Set your magic carpet's garmin for La Push, WA. Look for the luxurious, 5 star hotel that has been created just for you. Here you can get warm and dry while watching the huge waves crash onto the shore when you are not sipping something, reading or chatting. There is a huge fireplace and lots of comfy chairs. Yes, technically we should be meeting in Forks but...

Whether you are a *Twilighter* or you just want to take the tour, I found a company that offers very comfy flying carpet shuttles with guides who can answer all of your questions. The shuttle carpets are rain proof as well as wind proof and offer a 360 degree view. The line to these shuttles is to the right through the purple door. There are plenty of shuttle carpets to accommodate everyone and they have plenty of room.

Otherwise you can don the warm coats you brought and head to the left and the gold door. Here you have your choice of walking First Beach or taking the shuttle to 2nd or 3rd Beach. Yes, I know, the beaches were given such romantic names.

Robb's Weather Forecast calls for low 50's with no rain in the Forks/La Push/Port Angeles area. It is a partly cloudy day. There is a mild to brisk breeze off the ocean. Remember, our forecasters are notorious for getting things wrong, it is November and it is the PacificNorthWet.

You can walk whichever beach, feed the seagulls or watch for eagles and pelicans. Or there is also a shuttle to Rialto Beach. Again you can walk along the beach or hike all the way (about a mile) to the Hole-in-the-Wall - which has a great tidal pool to explore.

For those who are walking impaired there are specialized scooters for street use or on the beach. Or you can lazily waft along the beach(s) of your choice on your carpet.

If you were smart, you brought waterproof vs water resistant rain gear. If not, there are some one-size-fits-all ponchos you can have - if you don't mind rave green and advertising X-Box. It is sure to come in handy at the Hoh Rainforest which gets 12 to 14 FEET of rain (or up to 24 more inches than Forks.) The carpets don't fit under the rainforest canopy very well which is why the raingear is needed and the scooters are available to those who need them.

The Hoh (pronounced ho) is a mossy splendor in the rain, snow or sun. Not so much fun in the hail. And you have a good chance of seeing some Roosevelt Elk and other wildlife. We can stop for lunch at the Hard Rain Café. Love THAT name.

The Alaskan Brewery has provided us with bottles of their amber, white, stout, ipa, pale and winter for your pleasure. It is going to be a long and potentially calorie burning day so rest assured that there are snacks and real food readily available for your enjoyment. No Starbucks but we do have Seattle's Best Coffee. And hot chocolate with the option of adding some Bailey's.

A special Birthday supper will be being served from 5-7 in the dining room.

Sunsets can be spectacular but not tonight. Tonight you have fog ......with vampires ..... and werewolves.....out here... someplace......

Some fun Twilight factoids:

Twilight (AKA Forks) is located between the Olympic Mountains and the Pacific Ocean in the NW part of Washington State and has a huge population of 3,500. It is surrounded by Douglas fir and Sitka spruce and was once nicknamed "The Logging Capital of the World." However, times have changed for the worse for the town.

Forks is located some 15 miles from the rain-soaked Pacific Ocean. It has all of two major traffic lights on one main street. It gets 10 to 12 FEET of rain per year.

In 2003, a thousand miles away in Phoenix, a stay-at-home mom looking for a dark place to set a teenage vampire novel did an Internet search for the rainiest locale in the U.S. The result: the Olympic Peninsula, and a little place called Forks.

With the coming of the Twilight series the town has become the vampirical Holy Grail for Twilighters wanting to catch a glimpse of where Bella Swan lives.

Forks residents have responded by giving the fans what they want. From merchandise: T-shirts say "Forks Bites!" to signage: "No Vampires Beyond this Point", most everyone has given in to the Twilight phenomenon.

And lucky us - we Seattleites can make the trip to Forks in roughly three and a half hours. And even luckier for FB&Cers - they can be there instantly on the magic carpets we all kept from Marilyn's magical trip. If you didn't get one, hopefully she still has some spares.

If you are into Twilight, here is the authoritative list of places to go and things to see in Forks. I am not into Twilight but I have been by everything but the hospital. And I have probably been there to, just didn't realize it. Forks is not a terribly large town.

Forks Welcome Sign
This is the piece of evidence you'll need to prove you've walked in Bella's beat up pair of Converses. The sign is close to the road, so be careful when you pull over on your way in to or out of town to snap a pic.

Bella's Truck
As every Twighter knows, Bella's red 1950's Chevrolet pickup truck is a character in its own right throughout the Twilight series. While her appreciation for the town of Forks is slower to grow, she falls in love with Charlie's welcome gift instantly.

Swan House
While there is no real Swan home in Forks (news flash: they're fictional), a real Forks couple volunteered their home to be the "official" home of Bella and Charlie. Note: You can drive by and take pictures by the sign out front, but it's a private residence so don't attempt to go in. (Again, she doesn't really live there.)

Forks High School
As you probably know, Forks High School is home to many scenes in the books and film adaptations. They based the sign in the movie off of the real one, so it makes a great background for a photo op. Show your Spartan spirit (or don't--we know Bella never did).

Forks Hospital
Dr. Cullen will most likely be out for the day, but the Forks Hospital makes for another fun stop on the tour. Just try not to be as klutzy as Bella and end up in the emergency room--there's still a lot more to see.

Bella Italia
If you want to cover all Twilight ground, visiting Port Angeles is a must. After all, it's where Edward and Bella had their first date. Go to Bella Italia and order the Mushroom Ravioli like she did. Just make sure not to get caught alone after dark--unless you have a spare Edward around to save you

La Push
La Push is said to be one of the most popular locations on the Twilight tour. Home to the Quileute Indian Tribe, it's where Jacob tells Bella about the Cullens and the Quileute legends. It's also where Bella goes cliff diving and nearly drowns. Go there to sit where they did on piles of driftwood and take in the breathtaking scenes.

The Hoh Rainforest
If you really want to put yourself in Bella and Edward's shoes, taking a hike in the Hoh Rainforest will do it. There are two trails near the Visitor Center that are easy to stroll through, and the famous Hall of Mosses Trail is just 3/4 of a mile. You won't be running through it at the speed of a vampire, but the lush canopies of green will help to create a day of enchantment.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@__ German Chocolate Alaskan Stout Bundt Cake __@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Ingredients

Mix milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks and vanilla in a large saucepan. Cook at medium heat 12 minutes or until thickened and golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.

Add coconut and pecans, mix well. Cool to room temperature and desired spreading consistency. Makes about 4 ½ cups of frosting/filling. Divide evenly for use as filling and frosting.

For cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour the sides and bottom of a Bundt cake pan. Microwave chocolate and beer in microwavable bowl 1 ½ to 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after each minute. Stir until chocolate is melted.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, beating well. Stir in chocolate-beer mixture and vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating until blended.

Beat egg whites separately until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Pour batter evenly into Bundt pan. Dollop the frosting/filling into the center of the batter all the way around. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Cool thoroughly, and then swirl remaining frosting/filling over the top.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@__ Dairy Free Cherry Coconut Milk Ice Cream__@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Feel free to play around with the recipe, by changing what sweetener you use, taking out the lemon zest, or adding in lemon juice instead (lemon juice won't be quite as strong as the zest).

2 cans of coconut milk (full fat), whisked until smooth
zest from one lemon (make sure you don't get any of the bitter pithy white part)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups of cherries, pitted
6 tablespoons of agave syrup

Directions: Blend the cherries in a food processor or blender with a little bit of the coconut milk until completely pureed. Add to the rest of the ingredients and make according to your ice cream maker's instructions. Freeze to "ripen" the flavor for at least a few hours and serve.

@Robb that was fantastic. Although I read all of the novels, I became absolutely disgusted with them because of the concept of a teenage girl traipsing after the guy who causes her so much pain and leaves the guy who makes her laugh. As an adult that is a choice. As a series for teenage girls, that theme, was scarier than all of the creatures in the novels. (I will now get off my soap box).

However, i think your tour would be so much fun. Because while I disliked the romance I did enjoy the universe.

Your Birthday menu sounds scrumptious. But I'm not sure if Gluten free is available here. I really may have to substitute.

Happy Birthday to Leo and to your niece, Briana....

What a Great Start.....You put sssooo much work into this....Good thing that FB&C traveling is instantanious.....I already have a Red Hat Lunch and work today, but I will get to see some sites...

Robb says:
All the recipes can be made with normal flour. And just skip the X Gum which is suppose to help raise the flour. And normal milk.

This is a gluten free household. Fortunately, it is gluten intolerance and not a true ciliac. But for those who need to watch the wheat, I thought I would do gluten free. And dairy free. That we do have to be strict about. I did leave the butter in which I would not do.

Excellent start Robb...while I've read the twilight series I didn't really like it all that much...being a guy and reading over and over how beautiful Edward was just wasn't very appealing...I like the last two chapters though...thanks for the birthday feast and wishes......

Oh my goodness Robb, you have certainly outdone yourself this time. I don't know where to start. Perhaps I should take the shuttle trips first and compare how the area looks since the last time I was there... before Twilight. Then I think a trip to the beach would be in order.. enny, meeny, miney. After that workout I have worked up an appetite and the bday dinner will be most welcome. It all looks so yummy and it is good they will be serving for 2 hours because I will need a break from dinner before cake and ice cream. :)

Thanks for an awesome start and for all of you that need a magic carpet to reach Robb's current destination, simply tug your ear lobe and make a wish. Your carpet will be right there waiting for you. :)

@Robb: Wow, that was SOME starting of the thread! Hats off!

And now let's hunt some freebies -- I haven't done it for a loooooong time, relying on others to hunt for me, so now I'll try to come up with one or two :)

ETA: I don't seem to get any update on kinlib, so I guess I will wait again to see what the others will come up with.

Hey Robb,

I would love to visit your part of the world again......many years ago I flew into Seattle with a college tour and we made our way down the coast, with so many cool experiences. It's just beautiful! Thanks for all your preparations.....I want to do it all!

@ Leo

Happy 49th!! Have a great day today and don't worry about turning 50 next year....it's all good!

Here's my segue for what it's worth....a little lame! My kids' Grandma read some of the Twilight books, I'm pretty sure.......ok, this is a busy day for us, but we're also headed...

Over the river, and through the wood,
To Grandfather's house we go;
the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh
through the white and drifted snow.

Over the river, and through the wood,
to Grandfather's house away!
We would not stop for doll or top,
for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river, and through the wood-
oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose
as over the ground we go.

Over the river, and through the wood-
and straight through the barnyard gate,
We seem to go extremely slow,
it is so hard to wait!

Over the river, and through the wood-
When Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, "O, dear, the children are here,
bring a pie for everyone."

Over the river, and through the wood-
now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

~~~~~~FRIDAY QUESTION~~~~~~

Hopefully you got to eat Thanksgiving dinner (or another special holiday dinner for our non-U.S. friends) at one or both of your Grandmas' homes.

If you'd like to, please tell us your 2 Grandmas' first names and what special name you called them (Grammy, Gran, Nana etc.)

Also:

Please tell us 1 special thing about them, such as:
- a fond memory
- one of their belongings you now own
- a gift they gave you
- a favorite saying etc.

(P.S. Grandpa will get a future question! )

Suze, I wish that I could answer your question. I only remember seeing my grandmother twice...
Once for my grandparents 50th ann. and one when she was ill and mom, my very young son (at the time) and I drove from Ca. to Mo. to be there....She recovered...but has since passed, about a month after grandpa did..Just shy of their 60th....
I have an afgan that she made.....It,s not warm, It doesn't match anything in my house but it has a place in the linen closet..
Sorry that is the best I can do.....

I was going with coconut ice cream but went with the cherries because you got cake instead of your cherry cobbler/pie. And cherries go with chocolate.
