The flood conditions will make Memorial Day a watery weekend with limited opportunities to camp, boat and enjoy the beaches but North Idahoans are a resilient bunch. Coeur d'Alene's city beach and river road at North Idaho College have become a tourist attraction of sorts. Flood watching of familiar places will likely be added to the list of things to do this weekend.
The steps down to the beach in front of the Gumprect home on West Lakeshore Drive have disappeared.The Independence Point lot is minus a few rows of parking.
The boardwalk bridge at the Coeur d'Alene Resort Marina is submerged past the steps. The opening for boats to enter the lake is shrinking.
The NIC beach volleyball net looks more ready for a game of water polo. Scroll down to the May 4 post to see what this beach looked like a couple of weeks ago.
