3. Glass Beach, California
In Fort Bragg, California you can find the product of early twentieth century garbage dumping turning from distasteful to beautiful. As the waves pounded over glass, dismantled automobiles and appliances all that was left was the glass and pottery completely smoothed over and colorful. This beach now exists as a proof that the power of nature can wash away man’s destructive ways.
Vacationers are strictly not allowed to take glass stones out of the park, but in spite of this, you can find them in other places on the coast. Many people go in Fort Bragg to see Glass Beach in the summertime. Also, the period during the end of May, before the Day of Remembrance, the festival of glass takes place.
As known from different sources, the glass decomposes from 500 to 1000 years. So in about a thousand years the incredible Glass Beach will turn into an ordinary sand beach. But now it is one of the most beautiful places and the unique beach, that was created by man and nature. To avoid losing the sights and stop the damage from water, periodically beach replenishes with glass. Thanks to this the summer visitors are able to enjoy the Glass Beach in full beauty again and again.
