Glass Beach - Fort Bragg, California
Glass Beach - Fort Bragg, California
Five small video clips in one. We finally went to glass beach Sunday afternoon, April 24th. Very cold and windy! There were more people there than I thought for a cold day, but fewer people than a normal day. It's kind of surreal knowing that thousands of people used this beautiful site as a garbage dump for so long. Now it's just an blended array of small glimmering rainbow colored specs everywhere.
