Weekly photo challenge is “Glass” Here are some interpretations of glass in California.
I love looking for sea glass every time I go to the beach. I usually find at least one piece. The definition of sea glass is:
Naturally produced sea glass (“genuine sea glass”) originates as pieces of glass from broken bottles, broken tableware, or even shipwrecks, which are rolled and tumbled in the ocean for years until all of their edges are rounded off, and the slickness of the glass has been worn to a frosted appearance.”
There is no better place for sea glass than Fort Bragg California which is famous for it’s “Glass Beach” However, since it is a State Park, taking items from the park is prohibited. I wasn’t keen on taking any but I did see a few on the ground and took those home. Still, I think it should be left there for generations to enjoy.
Glass Bottom Boat
Nothing like riding on a glass bottom boat. Here in California, tons of fish could be seen off of the coast of Catalina Island. Although not in this photo, the bright orange Garibaldi Perch can often be spotted along the shores and harbor of this populated island.
When I used to surf we called the waves glassy when the wind was non existent and the water had the appearance of pure glass. The same can be said of this warm California night and the water of the Oceanside harbor.
Lights or Candle Holders
Here at Bandy Canyon near Escondido, the grounds were spotted with various different lanterns and candle holders. All adding to a wonderful ambience at night.
Glass windows and especially tinted glass add to the richness of any building. Here the Hyatt stands grandly overlooking the San Diego Bay.
More Glassy Water
Even the Pacific Ocean off of the coast of California can have a beautiful blue/turquoise tone making it look like rich glass.
