Glass Beach, California
September 15, 2015
The colorful beach featured above, near Fort Bragg, California, is likely one of the most unusual beaches in the world. It was evidently once used as a waste dump (nontoxic materials) but over the years water and wave converted the trash into a unique treasure. Fifty-five years ago, the glass, pebble and sand mix was more than a foot thick, however, since then the glass beads have been largely picked over by collectors and beachgoers alike. Nonetheless, enough sea glass remains today to catch your attention. Photo taken on September 7, 2015.
