We both hate to leave Coeur d’Alene but today was our check out day. One thing is for sure, CDA is still one of those places that will give you any and all of what you may be looking for while on vacation. You just can’t miss while here. Right now we are planning our return for August and giving a lot of thought of work-camping or a camp host position at Farragut State Park until the end of October.
Unfortunately we have found that this spring has been one for the record books…for wet and cold!!! We had a great time in CDA but we were hoping for a little more sun and warmth. Well, we are heading now to spend a few days in Yakima and we sure would like to see a little more of that sun while there. Leslee, Lena, and Vinny have “guaranteed us that we will find the hidden Garden of Eden were the sun shines 24/7. The drive from CDA to Yakima was under broken skies and thank God, the wind was blowing with us all the way to Ellensburg. At that point we took the road alongside the Yakima River and enjoyed the views and serenity through this long canyon. One of these days we are going to get our kayak into the Yakima. It has been one of our “must do’s” for some time and who knows, maybe this is the year. Well right now we are going to make it into town, re-stock our grocery supplies, call Leslee and the kids and set up for dinner with everyone. We also want to see if we can make an appointment with our favorite RV shop. We want to have a fair amount of work done and we have total respect for this little company here in Yakima.
