Ussuri Bay, Russia: Vodka Bottles Return As Colorful Glass Pebbles

The power of nature can often be surprising and none more so than a beach in Russia where dumped glass has been transformed into colorful pebbles. The Ussuri Bay used to be a dumping ground for old glass bottles and waste from a porcelain factory but the waves from the Pacific Ocean have rounded and polished the debris left behind. The waves of the North Pacific have washed the broken beer, wine and vodka bottles into millions of smooth and colorful ‘pebbles’ that have turned the area from a no-go zone to a tourist attraction that visitors pay to see. While Ussuri Bay was once considered dangerous, authorities have now deemed it a specially protected area called Glass Beach that is popular with both tourists and locals. And looking at these stunning pictures, we’re really not surprised.
