With the lake being so big one can find a quiet and private beach at almost any time. And the town still has a small community feel with lots of take out places which harken me back to my childhood.
We like to camp at the State Park on the Idaho side – only $12 something a night and so nice and clean. We had five nights there and then took one extra night at another campsite, more primitive and well… we will cover that experience next post. All the photos for today’s post were taken with my new Nikon.
We arrive by the north end of the lake where there is a power plant – on the left side is a wildlife refuge. We always love to see the pelicans.
The refuge covers a large area and is worth taking a day to drive by and view.
The other side of the road is a different story – simply breathtaking!
This is the beach at a fee area (something like $5 a day – you can drive your vehicle across the white sand to the water’s edge for the day)
The drive along the east side of the lake toward our campsite.
I always delight in seeing this whimsical “Old Woman in the Shoe” house.
Snail shells in the sand.
The shoreline changes from place to place, but always the beautiful turquoise water.
And a little friend at our campsite!
We took a drive to Paris, Idaho which is about a 20 minute drive and though the Paris Tabernacle was closed at the time (apparently they were short a volunteer that day) - however we did visit the museum. Here are a few photos of the Tabernacle which is built of attractive salmon coloured stone.
And of course in the museum I was tickled to see…
Inspiring to see tatting from all those years ago. And yes, I did tat my way along the highways and byways.
I’ll follow up on the next leg(s) of our journey in a few days! Thanks for visiting.
