Monday, we left Washington and headed to Coeur d'Alene, which is only about 30 miles east of Spokane. It is the largest city in the northern Idaho panhandle and is right on the Lake Coeur d'Alene or CDA as it is sometimes referred to. It has become a big tourist area and has two major ski resorts in the area. The campground we are staying at, Blackwell Island RV Park, is right on the lake. Unfortunately we couldn't get a spot close to the water and are in the back with the entrance to the park in back of us. Oh well, we can't always get the perfect spot. The park is nice and has a nice beach area, including an area that dogs can go into if they want.
Got some nice pictures in the evening with a gorgeous sunset.
Terry and Nancy, whom we met at the Escapees Hop were staying here at the same time as us. We got together a few evenings for cocktails and conversation. One evening we went to the Cedars Floating Restaurant which is right by the campground. It is buoyed by 600,000 pounds of concrete encased Styrofoam and has awesome views of the lake and Spokane River. Picture below is from their website.
