Glass Beach Treasures

We sent two days at Fort Bragg, California over Thanksgiving weekend. Visited two lighthouses and Glass Beach…which is at the end of Elm Street.

Glass Beach is the leftovers of a 1949 public dump…most everything was cleaned up around 1967, but lots of glass stayed behind and continues to be washed up. The whole beach is covered in glass…I kept throwing the not so tumbled pieces back into the ocean. I picked a few pieces up, along with a ceramic insulator/spark plug and some pottery shards.

Adding a picture of the beach to show HOW MUCH glass is there…there is so much, I just picked a few pieces. I did see families out there with buckets.
