United States 17 June: Florence - Lincoln City
The Oregon Coast
We began the day with sunny skies out of Florence, Oregon, with an incredibly scenic route by the rocky and lushly green coastline.
The men's team thoroughly enjoyed the kind hospitality of the Best Western Pier Point Inn, which had an incredible view of the bay and sunrise.
The women's team was kindly hosted by the Silver Sands Motel, which was right on the beach!
Arpan was joined by his brother Giribar, who lives outside of Eugene, Oregon. Giribar was part of the first Peace Runs in the 1980's!
We visited the Newport Recreational Center and found the children to be extremely smart in our guessing games!
The incredible view from our window at the Salishan Resort south of Lincoln City (more on that tomorrow).
