Seattle to Gold Beach, Oregon
Our morning began in Seattle, Washington with breakfast at the Hilton Garden Inn. We then loaded the bus for a long drive to Gold Beach, Oregon. We drove through Washington and into Oregon while seeing some beautiful scenery, playing games on the bus such as charades, and watching Good Burger. We stopped for lunch in Cottage Grove, Oregon where travelers got to choose their restaurant. The majority chose KFC or McDonald's. Our drive took us by Portland, Oregon and down highway 101 where we saw the mountains meet the ocean. When we arrived in Gold Beach we saw some amazing views of the pacific coastline. Perrin, noticing the difference in beaches said, “after traveling all these states, North Carolina is my favorite state.” When we reached Jotʼs Resort we had a delicious dinner of salad, mac and cheese, chicken and roast topped off with birthday cake. We celebrated all the birthdays that take place during the trip and of course sang happy birthday to them all. We then enjoyed the rest of our night with some music from an amazing local DJ. Some of our kids showed off their smooth dance moves, some joined in on some line dancing, and others participated in a couple of dance offs. The night was full of dancing and good times.
