Today we took one last look around Coeur D’ Alene. We went to
the lake and parked at Independence Point. Right across the street was
the Visitor Center.
We took a walk around
the boardwalk. There is a beautiful
hotel there and is surrounded on three sides with parking sites for your yacht.
There were many water activities available….There was
the boat for a lake tour, or
you could take a scenic tour on a float plane.
If you wanted to do your own driving, then you could rent
a one man kayak, or if you needed help to paddle, then
you could ask for a two man kayak. Not big enough for you, then choose
a giant tricycle. Just want to hang out and work on your tan? Then you can find youself a spot
on the beach. Pretty cool to be in middle of downtown.
We continued our walk on around the boardwalk and saw
these beautiful flowers growing everywhere. When we made to complete circle, it was time for lunch. Now, Mark and Jim already had it in their mind that they were eating at
Hudson’s. But, when we got there, it was only counter seating and there were no seats available and a wait on top of that. So, Plan B….we walked to the corner and saw
this Mexican Food Restaurant. Sounds good to us, so off we went. And, it was yummy. Ellie and I had veggie enchiladas with rice and black beans. Jim had his usual combination something or the other, and Mark choose a taco salad. Afterwards, the guys thought they were going to get
While we were walking through the shopping mall, we saw the perfect trailer…
Before heading to the RV Park, we walked back down to the water where
I had to try out the water. A little cool, but nice.
Also time to say good bye to all the cute
Moose sculptures that decorate the streets in Coeur D’ Alene.
Once we were back to the motor homes, it was time to start mapping out tomorrow’s travel plan and putting things away. We will be saying good bye to Idaho and heading into Washington. We will spend the night on the road tomorrow evening and then the plan is go into the Escapees Park at Chimacum, Washington. It is close to Port Townsend.
I am looking forward to the adventures in the area…Olympic National Park, Victoria Island, Pike’s Market in Seattle, and a whale watching tour, just to name a few. So stayed tuned and join us for what promises to be some exciting adventures.
Again….Jenny, thanks for a great time in your city. It was soooo good to get to see you and we look forward to seeing you again down the road.
