It’s good to be home

Alix was pining for her boyfriend and her car. Pam was missing our dog and cats. Zach wanted to play his guitar and hang with his buds. And I wanted to get the 7 hour drive over with. So, we decided to head back from our vacation a couple of days early.

We did almost everything we wanted to do while touring the Northwest. We ate at a few good restaurants, visited Silverwood theme park – where Pam actually rode the corkscrew roller coaster (!), worked our butts off in a paddle boat, and relaxed on Lake Coeur d’Alene on our inner tubes.

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is a lovely city. The downtown strip reminds me of the strip in Kirkland, Washington. Lots of small shops and eateries. Updated buildings. And it’s right on Lake Coeur d’Alene. They’ve created a fabulous beach area for swimming, and have some of the greenest grass in the world.
