4th in Spokane

For whatever reason we decided to spend the 4th in Spokane.

Along I-90, the Roslyn Brewing Company is worth a stop for a drink.  They’ve got a nice little outdoor area where Zizou was able to roll around in the grass while we boozed.  Very dog-friendly as the bar tender had plenty of biscuits to dispense.

Word is this is the town Northern Exposure was filmed.  (awaiting delivery of a new battery charger for the D-SLR, so my Blackjack took these)


Further east in Ellensburg, we stopped at Irene Rinehart Riverfront Park after eating an Arby’s Roast Beef.  Not a groundbreaking place, but it was perfect for Zizou to stretch his legs and take a dip in the Yakima River.  Important to note that the Yak is moving pretty darn fast—there was a brief moment where we thought Ziz was going to be swept away.


In Spokane, the Howard Johnson downtown was our home—thanks to the excellent Best Rate Guarantee program from Wyndham.  An average room with way above average service—we’re about to go make our own waffles in the lobby before checking out and heading to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

And Zizou was a complete rockstar at the fireworks last night on the Spokane river front.  Hordes of people and loud noises and he didn’t bat an eye.  He was no doubt enjoying all the compliments being thrown his way by passer-by.
