Glass Beach in California

Beach glass

Did you know there’s a glass beach in California? Many of the “pebbles” on the beach are actually eroded glass shards. Over the years, the sea has smoothed the glass shards into translucent pieces that glisten in the Sun. Decades ago, the residents of Fort Bragg in California  threw their household rubbish over the cliffs. They discarded many old and unwanted items including glass. The glass beach eventually became known as “The Dumps.” Check out the Wikipedia article on this to learn more about the beach and it’s back story.
