Beach Glass Beach You Can’t Take Glass From

Ever hear of Glass Beach by Fort Brag?? I just found it through Pinterest :) It’s a good thing I don’t use beach glass in my jewelry, because if I did, this beach would just kill me. Why? Because you’re not allowed to take beach glass from it anymore. :( I understand that we want […]
