Today we had a short easy ride to Coeur D’ Alene. However, we still had to wake up early so we could catch ferries to our lodging at 12:30 and 1:30. We stayed at Camp Sweyolakan which is a summer camp that started in the 1920s and sits on 300 acres right on the water of Lake Coeur D’ Alene. It even had canoes that were over 100 years old! After storing away our stuff in open air cabins, We took out some kayaks and dove off the dock at the beach for a couple of hours. Afterwards, one of the staff members at the camp took us up a huge hill to a giant swing and we were able to take turns soaring through the air and overlooking the beautiful scenery. For dinner, we ate at Camp Sweyolakan’s dining hall and had some delicious lasagna. We tried to take a picture out on the dock but ended up submerging it with all the people we had and soaked everyone’s feet. We closed out the night making s’mores around a campfire. Camp Sweyolakan’s staff was so generous and helpful and we are very grateful for everything they did. We are looking forward to a great ride tomorrow to Sandpoint!
