This gets my memories going...I don´t remember Burgers at Hudsons but I remember, as a child, going often to the lakefront park in the center of town...there was some kind of a boardwalk I think and on the left side (facing the water) and we would have round coinlike medallions made by a machine that would stamp out what you wanted to say on them...oh, the wonderful picnics and beautiful days (this would be in the late 40´s early 50´s) at downtown Coeur d'Alene and I don´t remember it ever being overly crowded...I also went to camp every Summer on Lake Coeur d'Alene and some of my folks friends had get-away homes on the lake...all happy memories of the almost ¨All American Family¨ fictional kind.

The boardwalk's still there! It's now part of Duane Hagadone's Coeur d'Alene Resort rather than the old Templin's, but it's still there and hosts an annual boat show and some amazing Christmas lights.
