After the wet Rainforest adventure, we relaxed and napped in our room before going out to dinner. Vincent recommended the Smokehouse, a little outside of downtown Forks. This guy welcomed us:

Is this what Eric Cartman looks like grown up? Pie!!!

It served excellent local seafood and we had a lovely meal. We were too full to try the pie though. ;-)

When we left the restaurant, wonder of wonders, the sun was shining! We decided to take advantage of the break in the rain and headed down to Rialto Beach for a little post-dinner beach sight-seeing. Here's Vincent at the entrance to the beach:

See those big tree trunks lying on the beach? They're driftwood. Yes. Driftwood. The biggest blinking driftwood I've ever seen! See this giant formation of driftwood - I see a man with a fishing pole and maybe a dog lying by his feet. What do you see?

And can you find Vincent hiding by the driftwood?

Vincent's Clues?

I love the wind against the wave action in this shot:

One of the main attractions all along this coastline are the "stacks", rock formations in the ocean. Here's some pictures of them:

The final shot above was taken by balancing our little camera on one of the gigantic pieces of driftwood, that's why the shot is so senget (crooked). But I really liked how it came out. :-)

Finally it is time to say goodbye to the beach. As soon as the clouds rolled up and hid the sun, it got pretty cold, so we got out of there.

Bye Beach!

And just in time! With the clouds, came the rain again. But look! A rainbow! Two rainbows!

Are we ready to chase it to the end and fight off the leprechaun?

No photostitching on this one. But how about a video?
