Oregon beaches are unique in the nation as far as I know they are ALL public. You can own beachfront property but only to the point vegetation grows the rest belongs to everyone. In the summer you can see driftwood bonfires lighting the night for miles. Teenagers and old farts nothing like making s'mores while knocking back your favorite libation, singing bawdy songs and sharing the night with good friends, and if you don't make it back home, beach sand is extremely comfortable to sleep on. Especially if you bury the coals with sand and sleep on top of them, they wil keep you warm all night. Oh there are critters called sand fleas but they tend to stay around the tide line and rarely venture up to the high and dry.
