If it weren’t for a hairdresser in Lake Tahoe, we would have never stumbled upon Glass Beach. My wife was getting her hair did for our wedding and got to talking to the beautician. She found out we were going to wander the coast and she recommended a stop in Fort Bragg, home of the Glass Beach.
Once upon a time, the locals decided to use the ocean as a garbage dump. Apparently, they threw everything in the sea, including old car parts. They eventually found a more proper place for their trash, but their legacy lives on. All of the glass that had been dumped has been tumbled and returned to the shore making this one of the most unique beaches I have ever been to.
