Long overdue for a visit, I was happy to get off the bike for a week in the gorgeous North Idaho lake country.
Since my last visit the Adlards built Garage-mahal, bigger than their log home. Plenty of storage. 🙂
I happened to arrive just prior to final inspection for the Adlard’s new restaurant.
I tried to make myself useful with last minute details.
At one point I was trimming Astroturf with scissors so the patio door would self-close.
Lack of expertise slowed me down as did non-stop libation from one of the best wine cellars in the State.
As everything Adlard, Candle in the Woods is a class act. Plenty of attention to detail.
I was honoured to be one of the guests on soft-opening night. Thrilled to see Chef David Adlard achieve his dream.
On the weekend following Lisa took me out to her parent’s place where we enjoyed great conversation and fun on the lake.
I tagged along too for the Spokane concert with Steve Martin and Martin Short. Hilarious.
Finally, I was a LIVE guest on The Adventure Podcast. Always a treat.
