A friend invited to her place on Pend Oreille lake (in northern Idaho) for the weekend.
On Saturday morning we stopped at the farmers market in Sandpoint, Idaho. We bought some goat cheese for snacking and I found these great sunglasses that I can wear right over my regular glasses. Cool, huh?! It was raining most of Saturday, but I could not complain. The area needed the rain and the temperature was much cooler. Although windy, it was refreshing to sit outside. Very misty; you could not even see across the lake. After a late lunch, we drove into town to get dessert. But first it was huckleberry lemonade. Real huckleberries!Then a piece of the finest key lime pie outside of Florida. And then pots de crème–a marvelous combo of chocolate pudding and mousse. We then wandered around town–to walk off at least some of those calories. These first 2 photos are from an alley. The entire alley is painted.
Then it was time to head back to the lake. We pulled out the wine and goat cheese we had purchased earlier and completely enjoyed the evening. The weather had calmed down so it was a better view across the lake. (Check out the table. My friend did the mosaic. Isn’t it nice?)
Sunday morning was nice and clear. A gander of geese were swimming by.
After a morning and afternoon of yakking and relaxing, it was time to head home. But not before grabbing one last huckleberry treat. Paul Bunyon’s had huckleberry milkshakes. Yup, real and plentiful huckleberries.
A wonderful weekend retreat. Very relaxing!
