Day 9+10+11: (Newport to Forks to Edmonds) Pagan Pancakes, Blessed Cheesemaker Assassins, and Fifty Shades of Green.

 

Ok, I did not have internet access for 2 days, so I am writing this in word until I can get it uploaded.

Day 10: Cheese, Grommit!

Today we got up early, went to eat breakfast with my parent’s friend again at the Pig ‘n’ Pancake (which my sister misheard as the Pagan Pancake, which brought to mind images of the nice little old lady type of person who secretly is a Satanist). After breakfast, we started our LONG drive to Washington. On the way, we stopped at Tillamook Cheese Factory. It was really cool, and we got some souvenirs. One of which was a new travel mug for my sister, which had an old logo on it said “Tillamook Cheesemaker Assn.” on it. She commented that every time that she saw “assn.”, her first thought was that it meant “assassin” instead of “association”. So therein we started a conversation about Cheesemaker Assassins.   Not much else happened on the way, but after driving on a scarily long bridge, we finally crossed the state border. At the rest stop in Dismal Nitch, which has one of the best names I have seen for anything, we looked out into the nearby river and saw OTTERS! They were quite amusing, and I got some photos and videos of them. After that, we drove on and eventually got to our stop for the night. The place is cool. In the bathroom, the shower controls are on the outside of the shower. Above it reads a small note: “Yep, the shower controls are on the outside. We don’t know why.”

 

Day 11: Fifty Shades of Green

Today, we did a couple of hiking trails in the Olympic National Park. It was amazing, and perfect weather to go out and do things in. I got many a good photo, and spoiler alert: Trees. We are also in the area that Twilight was set in, and you would not BELIEVE how much they are playing it. Actually, y’all might be able to, it is basically normal types of milking. Anyway, we were discussing how badly Twilight had described this kind of terrain, and I commented on the fact that Fifty Shades of Grey was originally a Twilight Fan Fiction. Then my sister remarked on how the human eye can see many different shades of green, the most out of any color, and I just put the two together. After we stopped laughing enough to continue hiking, we finished the trail, and went home. We ate at a great side-of-the-road burger place, and got munchies for the trip ahead.

Day 12: Furthest Northwest and ferries.

Today we pushed onwards, which means starting to head home. We are taking a different route than the way we came though, so more adventures abound. Today we took a small detour to go to the furthest northwest point of the continental United States. It was fun, and on the way out, we stopped at a museum that was about the Indian tribe that lives there and how they excavated it. It was really interesting, but we were then behind on our schedule, so we changed our plans somewhat. We still took a ferry across a river, which was really cool, and are now staying in Edmonds. I got plenty of photos of the northwest coast, and a video of the ferry.

  3. 先日友達の家で見た雑誌で、ハイドロキノンが配合された基礎化粧品はシミを消す効果が高いものほどいいという記事を見ました。化粧液の成分は忘れられるのが早いから、次から次へと新しい物が出ては気づけば消えている気がします。
    ダイエットもそうですけど、美白にもいろいろ流行りがあるからいつでも勉強してないと古い知識になってしまって危険ですね。
    ドラッグストアに行けば美白を謳う基礎化粧品がかなりの広告を目にすることになって、さぁみなさん、美白しないとダメですよ!と洗脳されているようです。
    ヒアルロン酸、コラーゲン、ビタミン誘導体あたりはもはや定番ですね。
    ビタミンはパイナップルから摂るといいと言われていましたが、最近ではフルーツは糖度が高いからドライフルーツのほうがいいみたいですよね。
    卵のコレステロールは体に悪いみたいに言われていたのが、卵のコレステロールは善玉だから目玉焼きとゆでたまごを一緒に食べても大丈夫になったみたいですし。

  4. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to
    a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!
