Forks Fourth of July Re-Cap & Which Country Is This?

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

We had a beautiful day for our Forks Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration. The parade, was fun, sunny and warm, the Lion's Club Salmon BBQ was great and the Demolition Derby and Fireworks were a success.

The Fire Dog on the back of the antique fire truck is one of the Miller Tree Inn's housekeepers. She was pretty warm inside the costume. Another one of our housekeepers drove a car in the powder puff division of the demolition derby. She didn't win, but made a good showing for her first time as a driver.

We had some out of the country guests take part in the activities of the day and put this flag out for the first time. What country were our guests from?

Friday, July 1, 2011

First Time for the Flag From This Country

Besides being the first of July, we have another first to report. This is the first time we have had the opportunity to fly this particular flag. Do you know what country it represents? You will also see the Union Jack in the background in honor of our guests from the United Kingdom.

Forks is gearing up for our Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration. The events start tomorrow with Kiddies Play Day and Moonlight Madness with the downtown merchants. Most everyone will have a special going between 7PM and 11PM tomorrow night.

Though our weather today started with a cloud cover. Currently the sun is out, so vampires will be sparkling! They will definitely need to wait until twilight to take advantage of this weekend's activities.

Saturday, June 25, 2011

Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

Saturday, May 28, 2011

We hope that everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day Weekend. Here in Forks, at the Miller Tree Inn Bed and Breakfast, we have been enjoying some sun and clouds and very little rain! Hurray!

At "twilight" last evening, it was sunny and drizzling and we saw the most amazing rainbow from our side yard. It was quite beautiful, so we thought we would share it with you. We think that the Cullen family would have approved.

On another note, we have almost complete the work on Carlisle's Office. We need to refinish a desk and get a few more pictures on the wall, then we hope to get a picture posted on the blog.
