Spokane gave us a touch of home. Our dear friends and full time RV mentors, Kat and Steve, greeted us as we rolled into the RV park. For a week we would be neighbors just like when we lived in Washoe Valley, NV! Their sage advice, time, help, hand holding and real life experiences proved invaluable for our life on the road! The week flew by filled with barbecues, site seeing, meeting each other’s friends and relatives….all the neighborly activities.
But there’s more! One of my favorite cousins, Dennis and his wife Ann, live in Spokane. Apparently, their home is the place to be as Ann’s two brothers from Minnesota and close friends were in town too! They graciously hosted dinner and a fun get together at their lovely home for us all. Mostly I behaved myself but I did pull out a few stories about Dennis and Ann to share with the others! Of course, the week would not have been complete without introducing Betty to her cousin! Thank you Dennis and Ann for spending time with us during such a busy week for you!
Steve and Kat lived in Spokane years ago and graciously stepped in as our personal tour guides. “It used to be the city’s steam plant”, Steve advised. Walking into the plant, I peered into the center of an old, huge boiler and saw a dining table filled with happy eaters! Oops, sorry to interrupt! The plant is now home to restaurants and businesses built around the original machinery or remnants of it. Such as, large pipes cut in half now serving as fountains. The quirky architecture is a kick! Thank you Steve and Kat for a great dinner, tour around the city and Riverpark and a fun day cruising the awe inspiring Lake Coeur d’Alene. We look forward to meeting up with you two again in about a week!
