We’ve only driven through McCall, ID a few times but never stopped for longer than it takes to eat a burger. My hubby, son, and I stayed in McCall 3 nights and loved it. Fun, sun, biking, fishing, boating and a large condo on the beach (which was thanks to a friend of a friend).
This saved us a bundle and the whole trip was about $250; food, gas, lodging and all. We are so thankful to God for giving us this opportunity to rest and and enjoy each other’s company. Hope these snaps brighten your day.
We did plenty of “enjoying the day;” the weather was perfect; mid 80’s. Ahhh. I loved sitting on the dock and sipping my coffee; bed head and all.
This was our beachfront condo (huge thank you to Vadim’s friends!!)
A pretty stop on our biking trail:
I couldn’t stop him:
We borrowed my parents boat.
Ha ha, I couldn’t resist. I’m pretty sure this was a failed attempt to cast the line but at least I put forth lots of effort.
Our 3-yr old got a fishing pole for his b-day. He gets so excited when he catches a fish and shouts “I got something, I got something!”
I also learned to start and drive the boat:
Our favorite spot to eat was a popular little restaurant called “My Father’s Place.” Burgers were awesome and our son really enjoyed them too (if you’re a parent, you’ll know that’s very important).
We also had a favorite ice cream spot: “Ice Cream Alley,” where 1 scoop is enormous and even the “kid” size is huge. We went there twice.
It really was hidden in an alley.
This boy loved his ice cream.
It wasn’t really hot enough to swim, but that didn’t stop these two from getting wet.
Our last day, we toured the lake and looked at some fancy lakefront properties. These were our favorites. Aren’t they dreamy?
My husband fixed breakfast every morning. He got so creative!
Oh and we grilled some nice dry rubbed steak with zucchini.
Our last night; we lit the fireplace. A real fireplace; ah bliss.
It was perfect.
