CdA Corporate Life

Some of us believe we have it very nice here in the Panhandle, especially in Coeur d’Alene and it’s surrounding area. Why? Because we’re moments away from work to the high value recreational opportunities that abound in nearly every direction. And that makes for greater productivity at work!

When Mitch called to see if I wanted to spend some of my afternoon on the water, I looked up from my heavy load of paperwork and in ten minutes met him at the new Coeur d’Alene Park parking lot. Within twenty minutes of his call, we were coasting out of the Coeur d’Alene Resort Hotel Marina for a shirt-sleeve run to key points on the lake.

It was an afternoon break for both of us, just a chance to get away from the diligent tasks at hand and enjoy the bright sun and blue sky. We had nowhere in particular to go, nothing exacting to do; it was just a pleasure trip for a little under an hour.

I’d substitute lunch any day for such a refreshing time on the water. It made me think how good we have it here. No real traffic to fight, no long drives to distant water, no time wasted.
