is much more likely a "pampas grass" of some sort (the large evergreen clumps of very narrow leaves and tall white flower heads are distinctive)---either cortaderia selloana or c. jubata (originally native to south America) BOTH (and hybrids between them) are widely naturalized and just plain invasive in parts of s.w. Oregon (especially around Brookings) and California from Crescent City in the north to San Diego in the south.
agree that the clump of palms is indeed chamaerops humilis/Mediterranean fan palm.
