Kristine rock

When me and my siblings were little, we would often drive to the beach. I wasn't a big fan of the long 2 1/2 drive on curvy car-sick-causing road with my many siblings, or getting sandy on the beach and driving home with wet clothes after dark. So one trip, my dad told us we were going to "Kristine Rock", giving it a special name to try and entice me to enjoy the trip. We made many trips after that to Kristine Rock, and even though the smell of beans for our traditional picnic lunch of Haystacks didn't set well with me, I felt special enough that I put up with it. Several trips, we rerouted the water flowing from the creek into the ocean, and then came back and found our new waterway had stayed where it was, so we switched it again. My siblings and I still call it Kristine Rock to this day.

Fogerty Creek
red dot is for kristine rock!

The actual location is Fogerty Creek, just south of Lincoln City, OR before you get to Depoe Bay, OR. There is a creek and depending on which side of the driveway you go in, you end up on either side of the creek and can climb on the rock from the south side.


I made E visit with me on one of our Anniversary trips - this is June 2007:

And on Christmas Day, I took my inlaws to visit. it was a beautiful December day. Clear sky, beautiful waves, and some great photo ops.

And many years later, I still feel special that my dad "named" the rock after me :)

...and that's the story!
