NW Film Festival

At the NW Film Festival I went to see Politics of Sand.  It was a film based on Oregon's beaches.  It was interesting to learn about Oregon's shoreline and also learning that Oregon is the only state in the US that has all public owned beaches.  Every other state has some privately owned shorelines where the public cannot access the beaches.  This was a huge war in 1967 to decide who owned what and government ultimately took shore property from private owners for all to access.
