Fun, and I enjoyed the video, too.

Women in bloomers and children in search of treasure once flocked to Pebble Beach to spend hours hunting for the best pieces of agate, opal, jasper, and carnelians polished by the waves to shiny perfection. Also known as Bean Hollow State Beach North, the beach is located along California’s scenic Highway 1, about 30 miles north of Santa Cruz and 17 miles south of Half Moon Bay. It was a famous tourist destination in the late 1800s and the place of failed dreams for a greedy local millionaire, dead-set on privatizing Pebble Beach.
