    Having lived on the coasts of New England, the most intimate relationship
    being nominally 100 yds of the nominal waterline, my understanding was that
    anything below the high-high tide line (usually marked by washed-up
    vegetation) was public.  Anything above private.  That of course caused me
    to be cautious during my winter walks when snow was on the beach, the tide
    was at its highest, and I could be tracked to my home. <g>
