A change won't do you good! Uh-oh, here's story of a review gone south.
After a full day of white water rafting, we arrived hungry and tired at the Beachhouse in Cda. Why did we go there? Well, we went there last year after rafting. I gave it rave reviews in my previous review. Based on that stellar past experience, it was unanimous we were making this a tradition and would be back on the deck with crab legs, mallets and bibs.
We got right in and had a great table on the deck overlooking the marina.
What this? A new menu? No Seafood Pot? Confused we asked our waiter, what gives?
He explained a few changes. New menu, new employees, new chefs. We thought about moving on, but we were hungry and ordered something new. Meh! It was just okay. At the beachhouse, all those NEW changes made us OLD customers. Its spendy, and we can do much better in Cda. Needless to say, were looking for a new tradition apres rafting.

Very Coeur d' Alene!
The Beachouse Rib and Crab Shack overlooks THE Lake. Great seafood, steaks and other regional specialties in a rustic boat house setting. The BH is located at Silver Beach Marina near the Cda Resort Golf Course.You can dine either inside or outside on the heated deck. I'm confident in recommending the The Beachouse Halibut, Huckleberry Ribs, Beer Can Chicken & our favorite Seafood Pot- (Crab legs, mussels, shrimp and potatoes dumped on your table with mallets, crackers and of course a bib)The only thing that isn't great is the clam chowder. You expect a place like this to have an award winning chowder. Not so much.

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Urban Living - Spokane Style 

This was fun! Our story and loft was featured in the Inlander Health & Home magazine. Thank you to Blythe Thimsen, writer and Young Kwak, photographer. We are also very grateful to Heather Hanley of the Tin Roof for helping us design our space. Our ensuite coffee lounge even made the cover. Additionally, the other featured urban space was one of my downtown listings. ♥️

Laurie and James Allen’s new home in Kendall Yards offers lots of light and quick access to all that downtown Spokane has to offer.

A Vibrant Downtown Lifestyle is Luring Residents Back to Spokane's City Center.
"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…

Art Matters...

Collecting ART is addictive but never regrettable. With ART, the regret I do have is from the pieces I talked myself out of. I have a few sad stories of inexpensive ART I passed on and now the artist's work is spendy. Buying ART is not extravagant or reserved for the wealthy. For me, it's just I have my priorities straight. Think about how much ART you could own if you didn't have cable, that unused landline and you limited the times a barista made your coffee.

When embarking on collecting art - start small. Buying student art is an inexpensive way to get original art. Its like listening to a talented yet unsigned musician in a dive bar prior to making it it big. You very well could be investing in and therefore encouraging the ART world's next big thing. Buying local art enriches your community and supports the local ART scene. Incorporating original ART in your home adds an unmatched warmth, texture and depth to your space.

ART MATTERS. I know my life is richer bec…
