We found Wifi!!! Let’s hear it for McDonald’s! We caught up on a few emails over breakfast and then we were off on a short hop to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. What a nice city! The lady at the Visitor Centre was very helpful and gave us a lot of ideas of what to do in Coeur d’Alene. Unfortunately, most of these involved extensive walking which the Prince’s oxygen levels will not allow. We are regretting not bringing a mobility scooter, since everything we do is far or uphill. Nui isn’t exactly a gazelle either. The lady highly recommended Wallace, which was on our itinerary anyhow. On the way, we stopped at Cataldo, which has a mission era church on a hill. The church is stunning – all hand hewn wood, peg and post design, no nails, hand carved statues and even the original wallpaper from 150 years ago. Nui actually went into a church voluntarily and lightning did not strike. The tour guide/caretaker was very informative and pointed out several mysteries in the construction and decoration.
