Glass Beach, Hanapepe

This is one beach where they ask you NOT to pick up the trash. Back in the day locals would come and dump their trash over the cliffs here... eventually the ocean pulverized it all into "sand". There must be literal tons of broken glass here, all of which has been smoothed and polished into tiny "gems". Elsewhere on the rocks, old engines and other machine parts have rusted and melted into part of the landscape. It's really something to look see.

I think this last one is the remains of a jet engine.
