Twin Peaks

I drove out to North Bend to take photos for another commission.  I left early enough to be able to sketch.  Unfortunately, it was raining hard.  So I sketched what I could see from the car, though I would have rather been seated at the corner across the street.

North Bend was the location for many of the exterior shots from the 1990’s TV
show, Twin Peaks.  It was one of the first places I saw Kyle MacLachlan, who played the lead character, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper.  He now plays the mayor in Portlandia.

Twede’s Cafe was featured.    Agent Cooper would go in for cherry pie and “A damn fine cup o’ coffee!”.  So, of course, while my sketch was drying in the car, I went in for pie and coffee.

As I wrote, above, this was not the view I had hoped to sketch.  But with the rain, I sat in the car and sketched what I could see.  A bit of the mountain peeks over the roof.

    Did you see the sheriff’s office? It’s really a Weyerhauser building! I used to be a Peakie, so I made the trek several years ago.

      No, I didn’t. I lived in SoCal when this show was on TV and didn’t really follow it that much. So I don’t know anything much more about the actual locations.
