Oregon Beach Locations

Hi everyone, I live in the Seattle Metro area and Im looking for a little information. I tumble, cut and lap slabs and form cabochons The wife and I would like to make a trip down the Oregon Coast and I was wondering if anyone can afford me any information about beach locations where we might be able to find some nice beach agate, jasper or any nice specimens for tumbling or cutting? We were thinking about the area from say North Bend, OR north to Astoria OR. We would like to make this trip in March or early April after the winter storms. I am somewhat limited in that I have two bum knees and walking for any great distance in dry sand is a problem for me. Rock covered beaches and wet sand give me some support under foot and I get along OK just very slow. Any information would greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help
