Visiting Germany years ago, I have always maintained that their version of “Platz” (plazas) and open-air seating and markets really added to the beauty of the area. There was the quiet and calmness that was pronounced … no car exhaust, no noise of traffic and its hustle and bustle.
Coeur d’Alene downtown could easily have two or three blocks become this scene. Especially now — “social distancing” easily obtained and enjoyed by our city by the lake, with the beauty that surrounds us.
Ours to cherish.
