Road Trip, Day Six: Glass Beach, Fort Bragg.

Glass Beach in Fort Bragg, CA is the most amazing beach ever.
It's a sad history really, as the beach was the local dump for the town
in the early 20th century. Who knew that all the rubbish would eventually
tumble in the waves to create such glorious results.
Literally you can dig your hand into inches upon inches of colorful sea glass,
broken pottery and even some worn down metal bits.
I felt like I was in the scene of Amelie where she is dipping her
hand into lentils, but in my case colorful sea glass. So amazing.
Go back to the first photo...that beach is literally ALL glass!


  1. I've heard about this place (and the way it came about), but it truly does look amazing doesn't it? I'd love to visit. It would be so tempting (and if I recall, illegal?) to scoop up some of that beautiful glass and bring it home. Oh the artistic things I could do with it!

  2. What an amazing beach!
    The pictures of this road trip are really awesome.
