At Lake Coeur d'Alene for a Few Days

Relaxing at friend's (John and Roberta) cabin on Lake Coeur d'Alene (Windy Bay) for a few days. We haven't been to this lake since we moved to Boston in 1998, so it's been a real treat to be back. The cabin we used to come to had electricity but no running water or phone. It was being cared for by friends, but was on tribal land which is now in the process of new development. The cabin we're in for the days we're here is not far down the road and is owned by distant relatives. It's a more modern cabin with flush toilets, showers, phone, hot tub etc.

The cabin sits a few dozen feet up off the lake, the view is really nice. 25 yards down a path and you are at the dock. We've done a variety of things including taking a spin in the paddle boat, swimming in the lake, soaking in the hot tub, playing games, eating good food, going on hikes and spending a lot of time napping. Evenings are spent playing games or just sitting around and talking.

It's going to be hard to leave this place.
