Days Nineteen and Twenty

Friday evening after supper I went with Tracy and Maya and the dogs to the bluff on the south side of town. There are wonderful paths, although when we arrived it looked to me like a cliff. Ever since I did a series of photos on trees in India a year or two ago, I have noticed unusually-shaped trees. We saw one that was amazing, with a completely twisted trunk.

The sunset was beautiful.

On Saturday we went to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, about 35 miles to the east. It is a favorite spot for swimming and picnicking. We had 9 people, three dogs, two cars and two bicycles. Dan and Tracy set out first on bikes to ride on the nice trail between Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. We managed to meet up in the central part of town near the beach area. We climbed up onto a bluff above the lake. Dirk and Tracy went off to get subs, chips and drinks for lunch. The kids were eager to get into the water, as were two of the dogs (Maggie is pretty old now and only went to the water's edge). We were near to a marina and enjoyed watching the various boats coming and going. Dan rode back and the rest of us returned by car. A lovely day by the water!

In the evening we met their realtor on South Hill and had a tour of the inside of the house they are in the process of buying. It is a wonderful house and they are really excited about moving next week!
