_Leaving Lincoln behind, we headed off to Chewelah, Washington and an all too short of a visit with Dave and Carol Hawkins. Our route took us along the shores of Banks Lake from Lincoln north to Cedonia and then across to Chewelah. With our GPS, we easily found our way to the Chewelah Golf and Country Club and the front porch of Dave and Carol’s home. Again, like Karl and Nicki’s home, Dave and Carol have found a beautiful place to call home,
_and they made us feel so absolutely comfortable. As you walk through the “Great Room” and out to the large covered deck, you could be lucky enough to be watching a world class golf match taking place in front of you. Carol had been working hard over the last few weeks in putting together a women’s golf tournament and here we come, guests on top of the big tournament tee off the next morning…. And then on top of all that, Dave out did himself by serving the best “Texas BBQ Brisket and Hominy” dinner we have ever had. After dinner Dave took me out to see the course. We jumped into his golf cart and hit the links. I haven’t been on a lot of golf courses, but this one was really beautiful and in my opinion, must be one hell of a course to get a decent score on. Early the next morning, Louise and I joined them at the club house for a quick breakfast, watched the “shotgun” start and pulled out for our next destination…Farragut State Park in northern Idaho.
