April Showers, April Flowers

We had our share of April showers this year and it has caused an explosion of April flowers in our yard.  Most flowerbeds are covered with blue bells.  The daffodils are on their way out, but still hanging in there and the tulips are up and swaying in the breeze.  The azaleas are popping out and the rhodys will be next.

We left in early April to take a train trip to Montana and were wowed by the colors upon our return.  I think that spring may be my favorite season!

We did miss the grand opening of the Rainforest Arts Center.  This Arts Center rose from the ashes of the old Dazzled by Twilight store and is really a welcome addition to the Forks core.  Many of the September Twilight activities are scheduled to take place in this building and we think our visitors will be really pleased.

Keep looking at the Forks Chamber of Commerce Events page.  Perhaps you can catch a performance, lecture, movie or some other happening at the Arts Center.  We currently have room availability for most nights in May, including Memorial Day weekend.

Happy Easter!

Tomorrow is Easter and the hard boiled egg Easter bunnies are  in the refrigerator getting ready to make an appearance on everyone's breakfast plate in the morning.  They will be served along side Orange Croissant French Toast and glazed beef sausage.

Other happenings in April:  The new Rainforest Arts Center is set for a grand opening the weekend of April 18.  Live performances and movies are on the agenda for that weekend, which also happens to be Rainfest.  Look for the "Fabric of the Forest" quilt show, as well as quilting classes.  More information about these events can be found on the Forks Chamber of Commerce website at:

Innkeeper Bill, is looking forward to April 25 when the Forks Elks Lodge is hosting all the Forks classes of the 1970's for the 2nd Annual 70's Reunion.  The cost is $20 per person and includes food all day long.  If you are a graduate of Forks High School in the 1970's, this is the event for you.
