…..in which a group of us spend an afternoon on Glassy Beach.
There are lots of cool places to visit in Newfoundland if you get off the beaten path.
One of my new favourite places to go is glassy beach.
Now don’t get too excited; Glassy Beach is not much of a beach in the usual sense. There is no sand and nary a sun bather; it is just a rough patch between two outcroppings of igneous rock.
Actually the rocks are pretty interesting in themselves. Much of Notre Dame Bay is made up of ancient volcano.
But what makes Glassy Beach so delightful is the glass.
It used to be over a foot deep but scavengers have made off with it by the wheelbarrow load and every year it gets more and more depleted despite the sign asking people not to remove anything. There is no longer a dump around the corner to replenish the supply.
There is more than just glass there. You can find lots of interesting pottery fragments as well.
No end to the fun to be had!
