WHAT?! Everyone's Doing It! Part Three

**You might want to read these posts first--WHAT?! Everyone's Doing It! Part One and WHAT?! Everyone's Doing It! Part Two. Or, you can just jump right in!

And now, onto Part 3. This is the last part, for now, as there is much more Twilight Scouting to be done on my end. So, I'll try to write about...something else...next time. My life isn't always a wanna-be vampire movie. I love how whatever I tell you is what it is. Blogging is great. Ha. Just kidding, I'm perfectly normal.

Next, Shannon and I went to the beautiful, picturesque View Point Inn. I should've got married here. I should live here. What a view of the Columbia Gorge! This is the place in the movie where the prom was filmed--the gazebo scene, where Edward and Bella dance. It is also the part where Victoria is looking down from the upstairs window at Edward and Bella, plotting her next vampire move, to be sure.

The View Point Inn has a Twilight Walk of Fame. You can purchase (donate) a brick and put your name on it, right next to all the Twilight characters... Your brick can even say, "Edward and Sunshine, forever" if you want. If you want.

I'm sure this movie has been amazing for the View Point's business. While we were wandering the grounds, this (nice) fella came out of the inn and invited us to come on in and take the Twilight tour, showed us where the gazebo was in the movie, and exactly what window Victoria stood in. He invited us to have lunch there and check out the gift shop. He gave us a flyer to buy tickets to the Twilight Prom they are having. Anyone can go (taking notes).

Shannon and I took our own little tour of the place. We stood in "the" window, not at all looking like Victoria. So, not looking like Victoria. The curtains were the very same ones as in the movie (just a little fun fact). Aaaaaand I spent $6.00 on two pictures of Edward and Bella at the gift shop. Oh course, I did.

Did I mention all the other people there doing exactly what we were doing? Oh yeah, no lie. This is a for sure a pastime. When we were walking back to the car, there was a "Portland Movie Tours" van parked outside. The driver came over and gave me her card. I had no idea there was such a thing. I am so sheltered. I, have learned so much.

Exciting times were had. Oh yes they were. Shannon and I so didn't want to go home. And we (which means, you) got to see the beautifulness that is Oregon. We wanted to stop at Multnomah Falls, but ran out of time (back to the real world)--you can see the falls in the background of the baseball scene at the meadow. There was also a huge scene filmed at the falls, that was actually deleted, of Edward descending from the falls down onto the bridge. We are so getting a picture on that bridge.



I'll be back with more Twilight Scouting adventures...though not tomorrow. I promised I'd talk about something other than my gorgeous vampire boyfriend. Geez, what else is there?
