That was the hardest I've laughed in a long time. My stomach hurts!

We actually made a Twilight pilgrimage a few years ago in the SMB: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4257&hilit=Quinault

This made it so much better. Thank you!

I never went to a lighthouse when I lived in CA, but I saw a couple from afar. I think this beach (Seaview to Oysterville) is the only one in WA you can drive on, but according to a couple books I have, at 15 miles long, it's the longest drivable beach in the world.

The sand there was a lot firmer and flatter than Pismo and there's no dunes.

Re: Twilight- Haven't seen it, but my wife is also a fan. I know the story is mostly set in Forks, which is on the Northeastern part of the Olympic Peninsula. There are some beaches up there that look similar to this (large driftwood and whatnot). Cape Flattery is one of our next destinations.
You're not missing anything. I'll never regain the 90 minutes of my life spent watching that flick.

Check out Padre Island National Seashore near Corpus Christi, Texas... 60 or 70 miles of drivable beach

That book's claim sounded dubious when I read it. How could there not be hundreds of miles of drivable beach in Africa, Australia, or somewhere else?

Re: Cape Disappointment, WA 2/1/2014

mighta meant longest in WA.

BTW... anybody going to Padre Island needs to do the homework. It is a TOUGH 60 mile drive, almost all of which will require 4wd. I haven't been there in 20 years, but last time, the ranger told us not to bother them with stuck-truck calls. They will helicopter you out if medically necessary, but stuck veeks stay where they are unless you contract a tow ($thousands$) I wouldn't even think about doing the entire run solo.

Huh... Wikipedia mentions the longest drivable beach claim too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Beach_Peninsula

I wonder what is the criteria for defining that? Not that it matters of course...

All the fun we had is now ruined because we might not have driven on the longest beach!

Re: Cape Disappointment, WA 2/1/2014

Guess those people in Washington just need to get used to (Cape) disappointment.

Re: Cape Disappointment, WA 2/1/2014

ummm, maybe it is "driveable" in 2wd... which Padre Island certainly isn't.
