This “did you know” image led me to one of the world’s most beautiful locations: a “glass beach” in Russia!
A Real “Glass Beach!”
This is why I love social media: there are so many amazing places in the world, and pics like this help me find out all about them.
These pieces of colored glass started out as garbage that washed ashore, and nature has turned them into a thing of beauty…
Ussuri Bay is located in Eastern Russia. According to wikipedia, because of the ocean’s tidal action:
“waves have pounded glass bottles that had washed up to the shore or been dumped there by nearby glass and porcelain factories into rounded glass pebbles. Rather than a danger, the glass on the beach is reported to be safe, according to the Siberian Times.”
I am such a fan of exploring the world, and experiencing natural beauty – or in this case, nature fighting back and turning garbage into glory!
I have shared a number of travel adventures before, like Paul Theroux’s amazing journey by train to the top of the world!
This is in Tibet, known as the “roof of the world”! See more here:
Here in the US, there is a hiking trail in Hawaii known as the “stairway to heaven!”
While officially closed to the public, there are still many adventurists hiking it – see more pics here:
I will never get to “Ussuri Bay”, so these amazing pictures will have to do!
