Glass beach
 
  “In every grain of sand there is a story of the earth”. Thus said American marine biologist and conservationist Rachel Carson.

This saying applies perfectly to glass beach, which is famous for colourful stretch sea glass born from years of pollution.

Situated in MacKerricher State Park near Fort Bragg, California, the beach is abundant in sea glass created from years of dumping garbage into an area of coastline near the northern part of the town.

The land, which was referred by locals as "the Dumps", was closed in 1967 and cleanup programs were undertaken through the years to correct the damage.

Though that was nearly half a century ago, the remnants are still very clear.

Much of the glass that was left on the beachfront during its dirty past has not gone far. They have been smoothed and polished by thrashing waves over the years.

Now the beach is covered with stone-sized pieces of sea glass, coloring the seascape and adding a tourist element to the natural beauty of the spot.

At the present, glass beach is part of the MacKerricher State Park, and tourists are advised not to take pieces of sea glass home with them.
