Beachcombing is a popular pastime in Oregon along its more than 300 miles of beaches. While agate, shells, and driftwood are common finds, you may also stumble across Japanese glass fishing floats, jelly fish, and and seaweed. Lincoln City celebrates beachcombing every year by placing glass floats on its beaches in the summer, but no matter what you find or where you find it, it is always “finders keepers.”
