The morning after the wedding, the bride’s family invited us over for brunch. They had a beautiful backyard and giant raspberry bushes that the berries were jumping off of! I picked so many throughout the morning. If you have never had fresh off the bush raspberries, you haven’t lived. they are SO good. I highly recommend finding a raspberry bush near you.
After brunch we spend a little more time in the downtown area of Coeur D’Alene. We walked around the floating board walk and saw some fancy boats!
We saw this amazing FISH SLAYER license plate!
The water was so blue and beautiful on the lake, I wanted to just jump right in! Unfortunately, I had already packed away my swim suit and didn’t want to ruin my dress, but next time I visit beautiful Idaho, I will make sure to bring it along.
whoa. seriously guys, I did not expect Idaho to be so beautiful, I’m glad to share that I was taken by surprise by The Gem State and I can’t wait to go back!
BONUS! They have AWESOME buffalo art.
They also had Pirates!!! Not quite as impressive as the Black Pearl, but still pretty darn good.
I even got to see an old friend from college that lives in Idaho now. Matt Molen! He’s a brilliant artist that specializes in animation and illustration. You can check out some of his work here
Overall Idaho was a great little mini-vacation! It was a great escape from city life for a few days and has given me a new forest to visit when going to the Redwoods of Northern California get old (like that will ever happen!) I fell in love with Idaho almost instantly and I miss it already. Plus their airports are so friendly, you have a nice day too!
Goodbye Idaho, I love you!
