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.

Season 3 will find that Sherlock has not relapsed - he no longer needs Watson to stay sober.
the only thing that would prove sherlock needs to continue to use joan as a crutch would be the highly unlikely event that he arrives in ny still actively using. if he didn’t relapse, that means he managed to resist all the temptations and triggers of season 2 without joan by his side. if he did relapse, he managed to get clean on his own and stay that way. chances are good that this will no longer be a barrier between them, she says, knowing that it should have been so last season when they spent over a year as partners and that their relationship will always consist mainly of sherlock being upset for one reason or another and joan alternating between looking out for him and being done with his behavior.
“Are you sure that’s a real spell?” said the girl. “Well, it’s not very good, is it? I’ve tried a few simple spells just for practice and it’s all worked for me. Nobody in my family’s magic at all, it was ever such a surprise when I got my letter, but I was ever so pleased, of course, I mean, it’s the very best school of witchcraft there is, I’ve heard – I’ve learned all our course books by heart, of course, I just hope it will be enough — I’m Hermione Granger, by the way, who are you?”
