Crazy Daisy Tour Day 12: Coeur d'Alene, ID
During our coffee stop at the Evans Brothers Coffee Roasters in Sandpoint, ID, (above) we help rescue a folder of important papers whipped by the wind. The businessman who owned the papers had a lot of questions about the smart car which he thought might be suitable to his needs.
Parked at Petal Talk florist shop we find a first generation smart car (below) which is puzzling as this model was only available in the US as a grey import. We wonder if this is a Zap smart?
For lunch we stop at Owen's Grocery, Deli and Soda Fountain in Newport, WA. Picture a large general store with a massive, circa 1910, wooden soda fountain. We get custom made sandwiches on thick cut sourdough bread for $3.50 each. The atmosphere is wonderful.
Back to the Shilo Inn in Coeur d'Alene where we've enjoyed staying for three nights, just doing local jaunts each day.
