It's rainy and sleety today. I went out for a brief walk and took a few photos I'll be posting over the next few days, including a picture of the woman who lives in the house with this gate. Today's photo is a picture of a jar of sea glass I keep on a bookshelf in my office. If the sills around my windows were deeper, I'd set it in the window so it could catch nature's light.
I collected this sea glass in Fort Bragg, California, at Glass Beach. If you haven't been to Fort Bragg, the aforementioned beach is on the north end of town and use to be a garbage dump. I guess there was a time when coastal municipalities just pulled their trash trucks to the edge of the ocean and dumped their garbage. Thankfully, this is no longer the practice. The result, though, is tons of broken glass that has been tumbled in the ocean creating soft, almost pebble-like bits of beauty.
