Day 2 (July 31) - Applets and Cotlets oh my

Today was the first of our real driving days and we are no longer in Washington.
We woke up and enjoyed a nice breakfast at the Bavarian Lodge.
On our way out of town we enjoyed some of the sites.
We stopped in Cashmere, WA to see the Applets and Cotlets factory.
You probably have had these at some point in your life. If you are anything like me you had them and thought, these wouldn't be half bad if they didn't have walnuts (not my favorite nut).
Well, let me tell you, the factory makes a great many types of this fruit confection.... with nuts and without, with almonds and some with macadamia nuts... yummmmm.
We had a few samples. And got a short tour of the factory, although it wasn't a work day for the factory. Then we loaded up! Berry fruit squares, sour fruit squares, bars, fruit squares dipped in chocolate, and some crazy good things with coconut and almond squares and dipped in chocolate – oh dear me.
So from our brief trip to candyland we headed on to Moses Lake, WA for lunch and then hit the road again – onward to Idaho.
I have to say I am amazed at the difference in feel between Seattle/western Washington, and the other side of the mountains. Looks like a different state.
Eastern Washington
the Evergreen State?
We arrived in Hayden, ID, our home for the next two days, at about 3 oclock. Lucky for us our room was ready early. The Holiday Inn Express is where we landed, it claims to be pretty darn close to Silverwood. And it is next door (actually connected to) a family fun place with bowling, arcade and an indoor waterpark.
Welcome to Idaho!
