WHERE did this name come from?
The first white people to encounter the Coeur d'Alene's were French trappers and traders. It was one of these Frenchmen who found the tribe to be vastly experienced and skilled at trading, thus the name "Coeur d'Alene,"meaning "heart of the awl." The nickname stuck.
Still have to think-even after writing it over and over!
You will be surprised--perhaps shocked to found out these people I travel with CAN relax!
Babs has family living in Coeur d'Alene. She had no problem emailing and asking for a lake outing. It is wonderful to have an obliging family!
Note--the small island in the picture
This is a floating tee for the golf resort.
The wind was up and the lake was choppy--so we headed to one of the connecting rivers. Thank goodness for wind protection-- my stomach does NOT like to rock and roll!
We spent an enjoyable and relaxing day---and OH YES---we might have eaten at the beautiful Coeur d'Alene resort.
AND--we needed the rest and nourishment to prepare to hit the hiking trail AGAIN tomorrow!
