Floating on the Flood Waters

The Cedars Floating Restaurant has been floating at the mouth of the Spokane River at Lake Coeur d'Alene for decades. After being closed for the past week due to high waters that submerged the suspension walkway from Blackwell Island, The Cedars re-opened today. The waters are just an inch or so below the walkway and part of the parking lot is still underwater but it was a treat to sit in the sunshine on the floating deck and watch the fast moving waters flow by.

This is one of those places I've never tried because I'm afraid I'll feel out of place there.

I can be a bit of a slob at times.

Phil, this place is really more casual than you'd think, especially in the summer. I like to sit out on the floating deck in the summer and everything on their appetizer menu is generous portions and fine dining quality. It's more expensive than Outback but has great steaks and seafood. Don't see too many kids there, more of a grown up date atmosphere, though.
