CAMPGROUND: 5th (and last) night at Tamarack RV. For a commercial park, it has been quite good. People are unusually civilized. Quiet at night.
LOCATION: Beautiful Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho
WEATHER: Mostly sunny. High 72
Today was a day full of outstanding beauty. First we did a drive around Lake Coeur d’ Alene. We followed several scenic byways.
The circle ended in a cute little lake town. It is the start of a bicycle trailhead, so was full of cyclists. We found a retro bar/restaurant from the 1940s for lunch.The story about how it gots its name, “One Shot Charlie” is that the owner (pictured here) had Parkinson’s, so his pours ended up being quite generous.Fun place! We had an old-style grinder.
Back in Coeur d’ Alene, we made a mad dash to the dock to catch the 2:30 cruise around the lake.
From the lake, you can really see the beautiful, expensive waterfront homes.It was a bit brisk – we have 3 layers of shirts/jackets on!
One of the highlights is the fancy golf resort on the lake.It is famous for its 4th hole, with the green on the water. The only one in the world, I think. (I obviously stole this photo)
We are glad we took the cruise. A nice way to end our stay here.
DINNER: We bought a filet of halibut at the fish market. We wrapped it in aluminum foil and cooked it on the outdoor gas grill. Side was Asian noodles and veg. A special treat!
