Face Rock Beach in Bandon, Oregon turned out to be a must stop on my tour of the Oregon Coast. What I thought would be a quick stop along the Pacific Coast turned out to be a 2 hour excursion and even then I was not yet ready to leave. The Legend of Face Rock is an interesting tale of Seatka the evil spirit of the ocean, the great Chief Siskiyou, and his beautiful daughter Ewauna. During the night Ewauna went into the ocean playing in the surf and the evil spirit Seatka turned her to stone. At sunrise her father awoke and finding his daughter gone gave the alarm. They all rushed to the sea. Fearfully they gazed out, seeing the dawn break through the white mist, and then they saw the beautiful face of Ewauna lying on the sea smiling up at the white clouds coming from the north.
