Sometimes we go to Hallshuk for a picnic with a gorgeous view. Today I used the app ToonCamera and experimented with some pics. Enjoy!

Today I went to Horsan, a small lake with limestone bottom and crystal clear water. There are not so many persons that know about this lake, so I was alone there. It was nice and warm summer weather.

Afterwards I went to Bläse Kalkbruksmuseum and sat on the stony beach for a while. A lovely day!

Glass Beach

During the early 20th century residents of Fort Bragg, California chose to dispose of their waste by hurling it off the cliffs above a beach. No object was too toxic or too large as household appliances, automobiles, and all matter of trash were tossed into the crashing waves below, eventually earning it the name The Dumps. In 1967 the North Coast Water Quality Board closed the area completely and initiated a series of cleanups to slowly reverse decades of pollution and environmental damage. But there was one thing too costly (or perhaps impossible) to tackle: the millions of tiny glass shards churning in the surf. Over time the unrelenting ocean waves have, in a sense, cleansed the beach, turning the sand into a sparkling, multicolored bed of smooth glass stones now known as Glass Beach. The beach is now an unofficial tourist attraction and the California State Park System has gone so far as purchasing the property and incorporating it into surrounding MacKerricher State Park.

Imagine that a place that used to be a waste dump, now is a beach with beautiful pieces of glass!
